Tunceli – Pertek county ancient ruins

Pertek County Ancient Ruins

Location: Pertek city center (county) – Tunceli (city) – East Anatolia – Turkey

Old Pertek, which was subject to residence in various periods, has remained under Keban Dam Lake today and only island looking Pertek Fort and Çelebi Ali and Baysungur mosques that have been moved to a new Pertek District (Tunceli Province), have remained.

Buildings such as a church, a palace, a mosque, a tomb, a bath, a kitchen for the poor, and a weighting house, which remained under the Dam Lake, show that Pertek gained importance, especially during the Seljuk and Ottoman periods as well as during the other periods.

Every time you can visit, open air area.
