GANJA FORTRESS


The famous Ganja fortress, known as "The Shield of Asia" was built by the leader of Turkish army in the Caucasus Farhad Pasha according to the order of the Turkish Sultan Murad III in 1588. The total length of the walls, erected 7 km away from the historic center of Ganja, reached 13.7 km and height - 12 m. Only one fragment of the fortress walls remained, and now is called "Shiralibay’s Tower." In 2007 it was reconstructed.
