“Interesting for a quick visit”
Reviewed March 4, 2014

On the day we visited some of the complex was closed for renovations but it was still an interesting place to wander around. We probably only needed 30 minutes to walk around the tomb, courtyard (my favourite part), hammam and mosque.

“Fabolous”
Reviewed January 13, 2014

It's must visit destination, if you are going to Azerbaijan. Historical with great monuments from Caucasus period, that isn't well explored by many travelers and covered poor by Western media.

“Beautiful site, yet still under repairs”
Reviewed November 17, 2013

Beautiful architecture, mosque, mausoleum and Turkish baths discovered amongst one of the more recent reconstructions. All built in pale Baku stone, very picturesque and interesting. It's therefore a real pity the interiors aren't more decorated and made to a more of an exhibit. Temporary exhibition hall was also closed by the time of our visit. Still, real worth seeing.
