The final point of the route is the Javadkhan peak. There is also an ancient Albanian temple at the summit. The temple is not in good condition, though, as part of the wall has collapsed. There is also a monument to Javad Khan. The monument, opened in 2016, is made in a special style and consists of the profile of Javad Khan, the coat of arms of Ganja, the sword of Javad Khan and an iron fence in the shape of a spear, symbolizing the Khan's army.
