'Mosque of the Ishak Pasha Palace.'

	The Ishak Pasha Palace, south of Dogubayazit, was built in the 17th and 18th century by a family of Kurdish chieftains who grew rich by controlling the traffic on the trade route between Iran and Trabzon. Here we see second court and the mosque of the palace. Photo Mick Palarczyk.
