Marvel at the early medieval stonemasonry of the Church of Kish, a monument of the ancient state of Caucasian Albania in Sheki. While the stone church dates back to the 12th century, the site has been used for religious purposes since the Bronze Age. The stunning dome is something to behold, while the church houses a small museum of archeological artifacts found on location, including some ancient pottery, a burial mound with skeletal remains, wall foundations of an ancient 2nd century BCE temple, and a crypt from the 3rd century CE. A bust of Norwegian explorer Thor Heyerdahl, who traced Scandinavians' origins to modern-day Azerbaijan, stands opposite the church.
