Dogubayazit, Agri

The town Dogubayazit (95 kms. from Agri) offers the most interesting sight to the visiting tourists. It is also on the old Hippie trail to India via the nearby border of Iran. The ruins of Ishak Pasha Palace, 6 km outside the town center is simply amazing. Ishak Pasha, an Ottoman Governor had this architectural marvel built way back in the 17th century. You will find a 9th century BC Urartian king's relief and a rock tomb nearby that will leave you mesmerized for some time. Such relics are also found in Patnos in Agri province.
