  • Standing proud atop a Turkish bluff, this abandoned Ottoman palace looks like a real-life Temple of Doom.

    • Documentary DP

    You could easily spend days, weeks even, exploring the sprawling Ishak Pasha Palace. The Pasha family spent over a century building this spectacular structure, beginning in 1685. A unique combination of Armenian, Georgian and Ottoman architecture, the fortress in Doğubayazıt, Turkey, was abandoned when the Ottoman Empire fell. But it quietly stands guard over the remote hills of eastern Turkey to this day.

Comprised entirely of natural elements such as clay, straw, and wood, these ancient feats of engineering harness the strong winds of the Iranian desert to both protect the village and mill reserves of wheat into flour.
