Çavuştepe is about 30km south of Van

The best preserved Urartian site is this palace built for Sarduri II (764–735BC). The walls of the castle can be seen, and archaeological work, started in 2014 after a 30-year gap, revealed 120 large underground storage vessels with a capacity for around 36 tons of wine, cereals and sesame oil, as well as the sinks in which the wine was made. It had a pioneering sewage system, and the Temple of Khaldi, one of the three main Urartu deities, is being slowly restored.
