Landmark · Hidden Gem · Tourist Spot
Admire the impressive minarets of Bibi-Heybat Mosque, a restored historic mosque at the entrance to the city from the south. Reopened in 2008, the mosque covers the site of an earlier 13th century mosque that housed the tomb of Ukeyma Khanum, a descendant of Muhammad. With its elaborately decorated interior of green and gold, the mosque reflects Shirvan architecture and has three domes. The old mosque was known as "the mosque of Fatima," so called by French writer Alexander Dumas who traveled here in the 1850s.
