About 2km northwest of the avtokayan is the village of Verisheen, which houses the ancient Surp Hripsime Church...
East of town is the 1991 Nizami Mausoleum , a space shuttle–shaped tomb-tower flanked by a series of inspired sculptures depicting scenes from Nizami’s works. A vast aluminium smelter forms an incongruous backdrop.
