The Divrigi site
Divirigi is the site of a remarkable building, namely the Ulu Mosque and Hospital, built almost 800 years ago. It is a UNESCO site and is apparently one of the least visited in the world, owing to its remoteness in the rugged hills of central Anatolia.
We took a car out for the day and drove down to Kangal, famous for the sheep dogs of that name, before turning right ont the road leading to Divrigi. After looking around the site and having a delicious lunch at Palanddoken Kebab Salonu, we drove back through Zara before joining the Erzican-Sivas road back to Sivas, a round trip of some 300 kms and six hours driving, including photo stops.
