Picture of the Ishak Pasha Palace, Turkey , photo by Photographer Paul E Williams. The Ishak Pasha Palace (Ishak Paşa Sarayı) is a semi-ruined palace and administrative complex located in the Dogubeyazıt region of eastern Turkey near Mount Ararat. Pasha was an honorary title given to officers of high rank in Turkey, as to governers of provinces. In in 1685 by Colak Abdi Pasha, the bey of Beyazit province. According to an inscription on the Harem door the palace was completed in 1784 by Ishak, or Isaac, Pasha and named after him. The Ishak Pasha Palace is one of the few examples of Ottoman Turkish palace architecture left in existence. It was the last large monumental structure in the Ottoman Empire from the "Lale Devri" period. It is one of the most distinguished and magnificent examples of the 18th century Ottoman architecture and is very valuable in terms of art history.

From 1685 it took 100 years to build the Ishak Palace complex whose ruins are visible today. In 1840 it was damaged by an earthquake and was abandoned for the next 20 years. It was then damaged during a bombardment during the 1877 Russo-Turkish war then was used as an administrative centre and fort until 1937. Today much of the internal stone is missing as it was removed to be used in other buildings but enough of the Ishak Pasha Palace is left to make it an enigmatic building perched high above the valley below.
