Delibaba (or Dellal / Velibaba) Fortress is an Urartian fortress which lies to the east of the Dellal pass 17 km southeast of the city Horasan in the Horasan county of the Erzurum province between Hasankale (Pasinler) and Aleşkirt. Its name Delibaba (Velibaba) comes from the modern Turkish village Delibaba (Velibaba) which is situated in the vicinity of the fortress. A stone inscription of the Urartian king Minua, son of Išpuini (9th / 8th century BCE) which was found there reports that the fortress was built by Minua "through the protection of the god Haldi". The Urartian name of the fortress is unknown.
