travelto Ordubad

The quiet town of Ordubad in eastern Nakhchivan is famous for its bountiful orchards and for producing the most delicious lemons in the Caucasus. This was once an important trade hub located on the Silk Road dealing especially in silk and fruits and today its multiple quarters consisting of narrow winding streets, water springs, bathhouses and mosques are part of an architectural and historical reserve. Historical monuments include a 14th-century ice house, the Geysariyye monument – a 17th-century bazaar and now history museum, and the Juma Mosque built way back in 1604. There are also house museums to outstanding academician Yusif Mammadaliyev and local writer Mammad Said Ordubadi. North-west from Ordubad in the Lesser Caucasus Mountains are the millennia-old Gamigaya rock carvings, although to visit those you’ll need to take an organised tour.
