Khan Baghi ParkGanja’s sanctum

Khan Baghi Park traces its roots far back as one of the first parks in the Caucasus, serving as a beloved relaxation spot for the people of Ganja, both young and old. Historical sources mention that Khan Baghi Park was established in 1582 and belonged to Mehmed Pasha, son of the Ottoman Ferhad Pasha. Although commonly referred to as ‘Khan Baghi’ (‘Khan’s Garden’) Park, its official name is ‘Serdar Baghi.’ What distinguishes Khan Baghi Park from most others is its unique atmosphere, created by hundreds of different plant and tree species. With the arrival of autumn, this beautiful vegetation takes on tints of red, painting a captivating scene to inspire and rejuvenate visitors. While relaxing in various serene spots within the park, the fresh, crisp air will also revitalise you. In fact, due to the abundant oxygen levels in the garden, it is also called ‘The Lungs of Ganja.’

One special feature of the park is the open-air Yashil Theatre (‘Green Theatre’), a site for a variety of cultural events. Shirali Bey Tower, a surviving tower of Ganja's fortress walls that was built in the 16th century, completes the magnificence of Khan Baghi Park.
