  • Great place near the town. It is convenient to take a taxi, especially if you have several people. There are also shuttle buses, but they go on filling. From the Palace open very beautiful views of the mountains and surrounding countryside.

  • Very beautiful palace set in an imposing setting up the mountain. This is the must see sight in the Ararat region 
  • For the sake of this place and drove in Doğubeyazıt. Be sure to visit. It is possible to reach on foot but difficult or by taxi 25 lire. Entrance 5 lire. The place is very beautiful. Back if you recommend hiking walk 5.5 km. You can go take a photo of Ararat and is generally very nicely

  • Beautiful and peaceful palace overlooking an amazing landscape of Doğubeyazıt
  • It's ok. See it if you are in the neighbourhood.
  • cok gorkemli bir tepede harika bir saray, 2012 de yapilan restorasyon da keske daha nitelikli bir calisma yapilsaymis. cati ortuleri bina ile hic uyumlu degil...
  • The place is probably not beautiful. You can make an excellent photo shoot. Who wants to get with Doubajazita here's recommendations. In the hotel we were told it was worth 100 lire. We took a taxi on the street for 25 lire to one side. Can be reached on foot who well physically developed. Entrance to the Palace 5 lire. Back came on foot without problems. Rasstojante about 5 km but with slides and have something to show. So the time passed.
