    Stop At: Juma Mosque, Nariman Narimanov St., Shamakhi Azerbaijan

    Juma Mosque in Shamakhi is one of the tourist attractions often visited by travellers. It is included into our Shamakhi and Gabala tour. Unlike many mosques, entrance to Juma Mosque of Shamakhi is permitted even to non-Muslims. To enter, you need to remove your shoes, but walking barefoot is not a problem, because the floor is covered with thick carpets.
    In addition, women must cover their heads in order to enter the mosque, so they provide free head cover at the entrance, which is required to be returned at the exit.

    Duration: 20 minutes

    Stop At: Church of Kish, Sheki Azerbaijan

    Sheki tour will begin with the church in the village of Kish - a place that was used for religious pagan rites from ancient times and later became one of the Christian churches of Caucasian Albania. In 2000, the temple was visited by the avid Norwegian scientist and traveler Thor Heyerdahl, famous for his research and sailing on the Kon-Tiki raft from South America to Polynesia in search of truth.

    Duration: 20 minutes

    Stop At: Sheki Khan's Palace, Sheki 0055 Azerbaijan

    The next stop on this tour will be the Palace of Sheki Khans, built in the 18th century. The windows of the palace represent the architectural style of the shebeke, which will amaze you with multi-colored glass embedded in the most complex ornaments, in the assembly of which no glue or nail was used.

    Duration: 1 hour
