Forts of the Kurdish Emirs

These fortresses usually are associated with Kurdish emirs who established local city-states during the time of the Ottoman Empire. They are characterised by defensive architecture, with some being mere fortresses or outposts and others perhaps having had some palatial purposes. They are generally made of rounded river rocks and muddy mortar, in contradistinction to Ottoman projects which were typically made with stone blocks.
