    Itinerary
    This is a typical itinerary for this product

    Stop At: Diri Baba Mausoleum, Qobustan Azerbaijan

    Diri-Baba is a unique monument, a two-story mausoleum of the 15th century, located on the road from Baku to Shamakhi in the village of Maraza opposite the old cemetery. For a long time, residents believed that a saint by the name of Diri-Baba was buried in this place and remained incorruptible. However, many legends and mystical details are associated with this monument. Therefore, already from the 17th century, it began to attract many pilgrims and ordinary travelers. The peculiarity of the building is that the architect as if “built-in” the tomb in the rock, and it seems as if she is holding herself “on weight,” cut off from the ground. The tomb admires the severity of architecture, the purity of the lines, and against the irregularities of the dark rock, the light and smooth surface of its walls, standing out, seems solemn.
