Mausoleum of Javad Khan, Ganja

Architectural Building · Hidden Gem · Historic Site
Visit the tomb of the last khan of Ganja. Javad khan was a popular local ruler under whom the ancient city of Ganja experienced a cultural renaissance. He was famous for resisting the Russians, who were expanding their empire into the Caucasus and finally captured Ganja in 1804, killing Javad khan in the process. The last khan's grave was discovered by accident near the Juma Mosque in the 1960s, and a memorial was erected following independence. Though newly built, the mausoleum imitates the old style of the local Arran architectural school. Plan my trip to Ganja with suggested itineraries provided by Inspirock.
