  • 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

  • You can choose a better place for this magnificent building, which somehow is a mixture of Palace and - however weakly fortified - fortress. It was here in the Centre of historical events. You go but also to ponder, if one has previously passed through the still poor villages away from the E 80. The sacrifices has it demanded at that time these people with the construction of this plant? Incredible! In the vicinity of the Palace, there are a few less remarkable building, from which there is a further, good view to the level. All above at the parking lot the souvenir sellers reside.

  • 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.
