History[edit]

Dağpazarı is an old village. During Byzantine era its name was Coropissus. It was on the road connecting Mut to Central Anatolia.There are ruins of a church as well as rock tombs around the village. After Seljukids and Crusaders, Dağpazarı was captured by the Karamanids in the 13th century and by the Ottoman Empire in the 15th century. After the Russo-Turkish War (1877–1878), during which most of the Ottoman territories in Europe were lost, Turks from Hacıoğlu Pazarcık (modern Dobrich in Bulgaria) migrated to Anatolia to find new homes and 18 families of these people were settled in Dağpazarı to start a new phase in village history.[2]
