The town was defended at one corner by the castle and elsewhere by a wall, which originally started from the ends of the castle’s two cliffs. Built of mud, and toothed with the remains of mud battlements, the wall of the early Ottoman period can still be seen in stretches.On the north of the former town it now starts from a point beyond but the line of the cliff, near the Van road and extends along a natural ridge eastwards. wikimapia.org DJI Phantom 3 Standard'ın muhteşem görüntüleri ile Hoşap Kalesi, Van/Gürpınar.
