Damal 44 km (27 mile) away from Ardahan center. Damal, formerly Petereke, is a town and district of Ardahan Province of Turkey, on the road from Kars to Posof. Damal is on a route across the traditional Silk Road, connecting the Caucasus from Europe to Central Asia and has changed hands many times throughout history, between Medes, Persians, Ancient Romans, Byzantines and finally the Ottoman Turks.

This is a rural area in high mountain, a collection of villages rather than a district built around a central town, watered by mountain springs, the district was created in order to bring more public buildings and government jobs and thus stem the drift of people away from the area.The rag dolls of Damal are renowned and have won prizes in craftrwork festivals.
