Palace sights in Northwestern Azerbaijan
- Sort by:
Şəki’s foremost ‘sight’ is the two-storey Khan’s Palace, which was finished in 1762. It’s set in a walled rose garden behind two huge plane trees supposedly planted in 1530. The unique façade is decorated with silvered stalactite vaulting and geometric patterns in dark-blue, turquoise and ochre, magnificently setting off the intricate wood-framed, stained-glass windows known as şəbəkə.
