Lahij - village of masters

ItineraryThis is a typical itinerary for this productStop At: Lahic Guest HouseLahij - ancient village in Ismailly region.This medieval town with cobbled streets and squares is one of the most famous in the Caucasus and beyond its trade and shopping centers. Skilled potters and wood carvers make articles of copper, leather, embossing here. Especially Lagich is famous for manufactured cold steel and copper utensils, decorated with engraved ornament. And to this day there are a dozen workshops, where hereditary blacksmiths in the eyes of astonished tourists make various household items. The very first quarter of Lahic was laid in the III-IV centuries. It is curious that the city has a water supply and sewerage system, which is no less than 1,500 years! None of the residents know where the sewerage starts and where it ends, and by what principle it works, which does not prevent the collector from functioning for many centuries. Now Lagich is a historical and architectural monument, protected by the state and the appearance of the settlement is preserved in its original formDuration: 4 hoursPass By: JinTravel, Baku, Absheron RegionAdmission is free

According to one of them, Persian shah Kai Khosrow killed a respectable ruler of one of the cities in the struggle for power. It caused indignation of masses. In order to save own life, he fled the country. The shah found shelter in the mountains not far from current place of Lagich where he spent the rest of his life. The village was formed by his servants and their families from the tribe lagich, who settled near the shelter of their master. Gradually, the settlement expanded and turned into artisans’ center.It was already then, hundred years ago, when copper became the main material of Lagich craftsmen. Local dwellers learned to melt it in their motherland, in Iran. In the new place, artisans developed their skills and established trade connections. Craftsmen workshops with melting stoves appeared on the territory of the village and the fame of beautiful and unique copper pieces spread around. Big caravans from Turkey, Georgia, Armenia, Persia, and Dagestan started to pass across Lagich.
