Ishak Pasha Palace on the Silk Route near the Iranian frontier is situated on a high and vast platform of strategic importance on an area of 7600 metre square.
It is not at all in the Ottoman tradition but is rather a mixture of Anatolian, Iranian and North Mesopotamian architectural traditions.
The traditional model used in the construction of the Royal Palaces in the capital cities like Bursa, Edirne and İstanbul was taken as an example in the desing of İshak Pasha Palace. The western influence in Ottoman architecture during the post-classical period can be observed in Ishak Pasha Palace.
The Ishak Pasha Palace although built in 1764 and in many ways typical of the 18th century, it is quite different in structure, and gives the general effect of traditional Turkish architecture.
