I did this by public transport - first by taking a bus from the S Vurghun gardens (near where the airport bus 16 drops you) to a roundabout terminal (this will be fairly apparent as there is quite a lively market at this roundabout), then changing to another bus bound for Qobustan (I believe it is 195, and there are...

It is located near one of the main roads to Baku. It increase notice and the visitors are always under the affect of exhausts from the vehicles. It has good view, but it is near an industrial zone.

A breathtakingly beautiful mosque from the 13th century, one shouldn't miss. Rebuilt after it was demolished by the bolsheviks. The mosque includes stunning interior.
