A bit difficult to find - there are no road signs. Not well taken care of. I suggest getting there in the early morning or late afternoon

Vanitas vanitatum
Sep 2018 • Solo
Yeddi Gümbaz reminded me of similar burial places that can be found in the Caucasus and also in the East of Turkey even though their dead belonged to different religions.
The tombs lie in impressive landscape, but their surroundings are not well kept. The architecture is interesting because eg. one of the buildings starts off octagonal and then becomes hexagonal, which creates a special dynamism, like the turn of a screw. Unfortunately some of the domes have fallen down.
Yeddi Gümbaz is not really a sight, but a spiritual place where the visitor can philosophise about the vanity and transitoriness of life.

Graveyard and Mausoleums
May 2019 • Solo
This used to be a complex of seven tombs for the Shirvan royal family in the 18th century. However time and earthquakes have taken its toll and only three remain, and not in the best of health. You are afforded a really good view of Shamakhi city from here but otherwise its an old and not particularly well maintained graveyard.

mausoleum...that's it

This is out in the middle of nowhere, but has very old interesting mausoleums. Not very tourist heavy so you can explore and go into little mausoleums.

nice view and ancient tombs
Jul 2017
Visited this place last year. Very easy to access from the main road, some of the tombs escaped, but for some out of seven tombs only ruins remain. There are also ancient/old graves surrounding this area.

Interesting BUT not a must see sight!

This is the Royal Mausoleum where the Shirvan khans and many other Muslims were buried. The site is kind of run down and overgrown with weeds and brush--which actually adds to the ambiance of your experience. It is interesting to walk through the graveyard and look at the tombs and other burial sites, BUT it is not a must see sight.

This is Cemitery, Seven Domes or tumbs . Yeddi Gumbez near Shamakha . Along with the ancient tombs you will see much modern crypts with photos impressed in stone . Some very old ones are painted and inclined stones tombs are very impressive. For some of us reminded the old Jewish Cemitery of Prague , except for the domes , the very high tomb stones and that here the aspect is not crowded

This Was Very Interesting and Historical.

Our driver did not complain but we passed through some very rugged streets to get there. It was very remote but interesting. The afternoon we were there, there were no other visitors. It was nothing like any cemetery I have seen. One was a mausoleum of Shakhandan, the brother of a poet, Nasimi. From there, you could see the city of Shamakhi.

YEDDI GUMNAZ MUSEUM
May 2016 • Solo
Yeddi Gumbaz mausoleum – is a cemetery located 1,5 km south to Şamaxı where three mausoleums from “Yeddi Gumbaz” group are still saved. Other mausoleums of the group are partly destroyed and are without cupola or walls. The mausoleum belongs to the beginning of the 18th century. This architectural monument was built for a family of Mustafa khan – the last khan of Shamakhi. The name of the architect – ustad Taghi – is also known due to a ligature on the mausoleum. An interesting cemetery if cemeteries are your thing, with beautiful views across the surrounding hills and countryside.

Located little out of the main thoroughfare. Road is very bad and quite steep. Worth a visit though there not much to see. Four of the domed mausoleums are still in good conditions. the tombstones are intricate carved, some are over a millennia old. The newer tombs have photographs of the deceased etched on the granite. Some of the art works are very good.
There are good views of the samaxi city from here.
