Dome of Ishak Pasha Palace

Built over an entire century by generations of the Pasha family, the Middle Eastern-inspired arches and domes have survived for over 400 years. Sitting near the Iranian border, the architectural design of the palace is heavily influenced by its neighboring culture, forgoing the intricate spires of traditional Ottoman buildings.

The palace was equipped with many facilities and amenities including a bakery, a mosque, dungeons, and a harem and had a central heating system!
