Create an itinerary including Shah Abbas Mosque
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.
