Historical Places to Visit in Turkey’s Eastern Anatolia Region

 

Turkey, which makes all four seasons live to its fullest with its unique beauties, continues to offer views from heaven in every region and to make you feel the smell of history in every period. In this article, I will give you information about the places to visit in the Eastern Anatolian Region of Turkey.

  1. Ani Ruins: The Ani Ruins in Kars dating back to the Bronze and Iron Ages have hosted many civilizations. It has been a bridge for merchant caravans as it is located in an important position in terms of the trade route between Byzantium, Iran, Syria and Central Asia. I recommend you to visit this historical place, which will drag you to fairy tale lands, especially with its snow-white appearance in winter.
  2. Ishak Pasha Palace: Located in Doğubayazıt district of Ağrı, it is the last great structure of the Ottoman Empire during the Tulip Era. The construction of the palace, which was built on an area of ​​​​7600 square meters, was completed in 99 years. Again, I recommend you to stop by this structure at sunset and watch the beautiful view of Ağrı.
  3. Tortum Waterfall: Located in Erzurum’s Uzundere district and pouring water from a height of 48 meters, this waterfall is one of the oldest waterfalls in the world. You can watch the rainbow image, which is a riot of colors formed as the waters flow, from the viewing terraces.
  4. Akdamar Island: Akdamar Church on Akdamar Island, located on Lake Van in the Gevaş district of Van, is one of the most beautiful examples of medieval Armenian architecture. You can go to the island with the help of boats and pass by the beautiful images of almond trees.
  5. Nemrut Crater Lake: It is the second largest crater lake in the world, located in the Tatvan district of Bitlis. The lake, named after Nemrut, King of Babylon, exhibits a legendary natural beauty with its natural beauties, unforgettable views and the presence of various bird species.
  6. Harput: It is a historical place in Elazig. It has hosted many civilizations. The castle was built on steep cliffs. Apart from this, Syriac Ancient Virgin Mary Church, Dabakhane, famous for its thermal waters, Fatih Ahmet Baba Tomb, Harput Ulu Mosque, Sefik Gül Culture House, Sara Hatun Mosque, Arap Baba Tomb, Ağa Mosque and Kurşunlu Mosque I also recommend you to visit.
  7. Arslantepe Tumulus: It is a historical place known for its fertile and wet lands, which is thought to be the first city-state of Anatolian lands, located in the Battalgazi district of Malatya, among the oldest ancient cities of Eastern Anatolia and very close to the Euphrates River.
  8. Mount Ararat: Located in Ağrı, it is the highest mountain of Turkey and the highest peak of Europe. It consists of two mountains, Little Ararat and Great Ararat, the summit of the mountain is always covered with snow and glaciers. It may be difficult to climb the mountain in winter, but you can easily climb it in summer.
  9. Çıldır Lake: It is a fresh water lake in Kars. It is located at an altitude of 1956 meters above sea level. Lake Çıldır, which freezes at the end of November, remains frozen until the beginning of April. In the frozen lake, you can fish by piercing the ice like the locals, walk on the frozen lake and go sledding.
