Erzurum Castle - 3D Virtual Tour

Erzurum Castle virtual tours can be started by clicking the preview window or by downloading the stand-alone versions. Just drag the mouse to the direction you want to look. Use the scroll wheel to zoom at the details. Press F9 to get a list of the 3D sites you downloaded (residing in the same directory). To install the listed sites as a screensaver press F5. Our advise is to install all the sites, including Erzurum Castle, as a screensaver. When the screensaver starts, a random site is chosen and shown around automatically (this gives the impression of looking at a documentary in HD quality). To see the usage of other keys press F1. Press Ecs to exit.


The Inner Castle which was built on a hill of 2000 m altitude was commissioned by the Roman Emperor Theodosius in the 5th century. It was used as military barracks by the Turks until recent years. Castle Mosque and Clock Tower are important as they are the first examples of the Turkish Architecture period. The tower which is called Tepsi Minare was used as an observation tower in the Middle Ages. It was transformed into a clock tower during the Baroque Period of the Ottoman Architecture. It was built by Abu'l Muzafferüdin Gazi who reigned in 1124-1132. The small mosque (mesjidt) which is covered with a single large dome, displays typical features of the Turkish Architecture.
