Mausoleum of Diri Baba

On the road from Baku to Shamakhi, there is the village of Maraza, famous for its unique monument - a two-story mausoleum-mosque of the 15th century called Diri-Baba, located opposite the old cemetery. For a long time, the locals kept the legend that the incorrupt Saint Diri Baba was buried there. The originality of this building lies in the fact that the architect "built" the tomb into the rock. It seems that the tomb is suspended in the air.


Shemakha Mosque Juma

The largest mosque in Azerbaijan. This is one of the first mosques in Azerbaijan after the Arab occupation of the Caucasus. Arabic inscriptions reflected on the walls of the mosque show the year of construction as 744 AD. This makes the mosque the earliest in the entire Caucasus after the Juma Mosque of Derbent, which was completed in 734 AD.
