Kaleköy is a modern village situated ca. 15 km northeast of Mazgirt and ca. 90 km to the north-northeast of Elaziğ in the southeast of Turkey. In the cliff face above the village, lies an Urartian rock-cut tomb. At the left of its entrance is a rock-cut inscription of the Urartian king Rusa, son of Argišti II (seventh century BCE) (CTU I A 12-6). Nowadays the inscription is heavily damaged.
