Lonely Planet review for Şəki Khan's Palace
The two-storey Khan's Palace (Xan Sarayı) was built between 1761 and 1762, and is surprisingly small. The exterior is decorated with dark-blue, turquoise and ochre tiles in geometric patterns, and intricately carved, wood-framed, stained-glass windows known as şəbəkə. The shady rose garden in front contains two huge plane trees said to be 470 years old.
