Gulistan Fortress

  • This magnificent monument of architecture, built in the north-west of Shamakhi on top of 200-meter high rocky mountain, in the 8th-9th century, has been one of the main strongholds of the Shirvanshahs for nine centuries. Its walls and towers withstood the attacks of the Arabs, Seljuks, Mongols, and Ottoman troops. The fortress has been severely damaged not only by wars, but also by earthquakes, and today there are only ruins left.

    Address:
    North-west of Shamakhi City.
