history at every stepalong Javad Khan Street
This street, one of the most central and longest in Ganja, is named after Ganja's last khan, Javad Khan. It is one of the most visited and beautiful places in Ganja among both locals and foreign tourists. The architectural heritage of Ganja, characterised by red brickwork, has been characteristic of this street for centuries. Even in renovated buildings, ancient ornaments and patterns have been restored and emphasised. There are a wealth of historical buildings on Javad Khan Street: the house of the Khasmammadov brothers, among the founders of the Azerbaijan Democratic Republic, the building where the first issue of the famous newspaper ‘Azerbaijan’ was published and the workshop of the Singer brothers, fine examples of German heritage. The house of the descendants of Nizami Ganjavi, the Sheykhzamanov family, is also located here. As you walk along the street, you will find shops, guesthouses, cafés and restaurants, traditional tea houses and associations for carpet weaving and painting. You can enjoy traditionally prepared tea and delicious Ganja pakhlava as you make your way along this lively street.
Javad Khan Street is reminiscent of an open-air museum, somewhat similar in appearance to Baku's Fountains Square, although distinguished by its winding route. We urge you to take a stroll along the this facinating street.
