This medieval mausoleum near the Araz river in the village of Gulustan (meaning ‘heavenly garden’), Julfa region, is thought to date back to the beginning of the 13th century. The mausoleum is built of beautiful red stone in the style of a tower, has 12 sides adorned with exquisite mosaics and a pyramid-shaped top. It bears some resemblance to the iconic Momine Khatun Mausoleum in Nakhchivan city, built by local architect Ajemi Nakhchivani.

Gulustan Mausoleum reviews
This is realy wonderful.
The mausoleum was renovated a few years ago. It's worth to see. The Iranian border around is also quite interesting, but I recommend not to take photos of it.
