Create an itinerary including Mausoleum of Huseyn Javid
A striking structure of white marble, the Huseyn Javid Mausoleum in Nakhchivan city was built over the grave of the brilliant early 20th-century Azerbaijani writer and playwright, Huseyn Javid. Huseyn Javid worked as a teacher before authoring a number of poems, plays and historical epics in the 1920s and 1930s, contributing greatly to the development of Azerbaijani literature. However, he was arrested in 1937 during Stalin’s purges and died in 1941 in Siberia. It was until 1982 that his remains were transported back to his native Nakhchivan. The monument was sculpted by Omar Eldarov, a People’s Artist of Azerbaijan.

  • The view was amazing when I lived there. Especially the sunrise
  • The first city where the mausoleum of Huseyn Javid is located, which at the same time is the birthplace of the great poet-playwright, is called Nakhchivan. This is written in Azerbaijani and Russian. And in English - Nakhchivan. Nakhichevan is an incorrect expression of the names of the autonomous republic and its capital, which was adopted during the Soviet era. And the second mistake is that not only Huseyn Javid is buried in this mausoleum, as indicated in the information, but also all members of his family, that is, all Javids - Mishkinaz's wife, Ertogrol's son and Turan's daughter. This decision was made 3-4 days before the opening of the mausoleum. That is why the reinforced sign of the mausoleum remained - "Huseyn Javid". Please keep in mind for correction.
