Sınıq Qala Mosque


Partly dating from at least 1079, this little mosque is considered the the oldest still standing in Baku. Its nickname, 'Sinıq Qala' (Broken Tower), was gained when its typical local-style minaret was left damaged by a 1723 Russian naval bombardment. It was repaired around a century later but the name stuck.

The interior is not usually open to visitors.
