Elegant Shah Abbas Mosque (aka Juma Mosque), dominated by its tall twin minarets, is located on Ganja’s central square and dates back to 1606. Its construction was reportedly ordered to by Persian ruler Shah Abbas the Great and hence its name. Made of red brick, which was traditional for Ganja, the architecture is oriental in style, and the ‘shebeke’ stained-glass windows are distinctly Azerbaijani touch. Right behind the mosque is the affiliated Chokek Hammam and in the past there was also a madrasah.

It was constructed by the legendary architect & scholar Sheikh Bahai after the liberation of the city from turks more »
If you think that Shah Abbas Mosque looks quite small, you will be surprised how many men stream out of it after a Friday‘s prayers. I could watch that one evening. Of course it had not been possible.... more »
It's nice and since it's in the middle of the city, indeed on the very center, is worth it to go and is easy to reach it, next to the ganja Mall as well. Everything is kinda close by. Other things farther away you should go by taxi.
Very beautiful and historical place.
