Photographer's Note

The Ishak Pasha Saray (Palace) looks down over Dogubayazit from its commanding position in the nearby hills. Its sandy coloured walls reflect the golden glow of the late afternoon sun. Construction of the palace was completed in 1784 by the Kurdish chieftan who gave his name to the building.

The site is 6km outside of the town and is worth an hour or so poking around the crumbling rooms and courtyards. It's a good stopover while waiting to cross into Iran, or in my case before heading north and into Georgia.
