Körzüt is the modern Turkish name of an Urartean fortress situated on a rock spur at the southern end of the Muradiye/Berkri plain, about 3 km north of the modern village of Uluşar (Korsot/Gortsut), in the Muradiye district of Van province in Turkey. According to an inscription of the Urartean King Minua (9th / 8th century BCE), the fortress was built by Minua.
