This two storey mausoleum and mosque dates back to the 15th century. The sleek but simple building is wedged into a rugged cliff and both take on added majesty because of this juxtaposition.
The building is perched on the cliff wall, but newer and more dilapidated steps provide easy access to the lower level. From here, a spiral staircase leads you to the more ornate second floor, and from there you can climb to the roof and dome.
It is located just over an hour outside Baku, on the route to Sheki, and I highly recommend a visit.
