Poignant Cemetery in Central Baku
Nov 2019 • Friends
Martyrs' Lane is a cemetery located on a hill in the south of the city close to the Flame Towers. It was formerly known as Kirov Park and is primarily dedicated to those who lost their lives during Black January 1990 and in the 1988-1994 Nagorno-Karabakh War. There are approximately 15,000 people buried in the cemetery. It is a very solemn place and nicely laid out and worth exploring whilst in the area.

A solemn shrine to Azerbaijan's Martyrs and National Heroes!
Sep 2019
"Martyrs' Lane" dates from 1998, built at the "Dagustu Park", in the hilly side of Baku, overlooking the "Caspian Side". Along the lane, the tombs of over 15,000 Azerbaijan's Martyrs killed either by Soviet forces during the "Black January" riots of 1990, or in the "Nagorno-Karabakh War" of 1988-1994, and also in the events known as the "Russian Civil War", between 1917 and 1922. At the end of "Martyrs' Lane" stands the large "Eternal Flame Monument", a shrine to all those that have given their lives for Azerbaijan's Independence. Visit both - the "Martyrs' Lane" and the "Eternal Flame Monument" - just unmissable at any trip to Baku! Silence and respect, here rest Azerbaijan's National Heroes!

can make you emotional

We visited this place during the night time, the guide explained us that these are the graves of people who had raised voice for independence of Azerbaijan from USSR and inturn had given ultimate sacrifice while facing suppression by Russian army. A bit of disclaimer, I ve represented the gist of what was told to us by the guide and not the historical fact. Personally , I was quite moved while going through the inscriptions and the photos of these people , some were very young say teenage while some were nearly 60s and 70s.

Solemn place
Sep 2019
Located at the top of the park, between the Eternal Flame Memorial and the Flame Towers, the lane has memorials to those killed in 1992 and before. A very sombre place and worth a visit to find out more about the history.

Impressive memorial site

Impressive memorial site close to the flame towers. You can reach it by funicular or walking up the stairs leading to a panoramic viewpoint.

This area has photos and details of people killed during 1992 and earlier. I found it very moving reading the inscriptions and realised how little history of the area I knew as a result
