MALAZGİRT (MANZİKERT)

In 1071 Malazgirt (Manzikert) was the site of a titanic clash between the Byzantine army under the Emperor Romanos IV Diogenes and the Selçuk Turks under Alp Arslan. The Selçuk sultan used Ahlat as his headquarters for this battle, which deprived the Byzantines of control of most of eastern Turkey.

Transport info

Infrequent dolmuşes leave from in front of the Ulu Cami in Ahlat for Malazgirt. Buses from Bitlis and Muş also serve the town, equally infrequently.
