  • It's far from the city center, is small and nothing especial, you have only a view from dirty places in Baku. So it's not worth it to go especially for it and the ugly but real azeri neighborhood. I recommend to go there only if it's on your way.
  • Ramana Tower is a tower in Ramana village of Baku and dated back to the 12th century.It is considered that the tower was built for the purpose of defense and used as a castle during the Shirvanshahs' reign. As per legend there were a long tunnels which led other castles of Absheron peninsula.
