  • Here it is easiest to take a taxi (from the maiden tower to Mosque on the counter-7 manats), but can also be reached by bus. From the site on which the mosque is situated, overlooking the port, which is also interesting to see. Across the street from the old cemetery.

  • Beautiful outside, gorgeous inside! Wonderful atmosphere, good people who work there. Answered all the questions, did a tour, gave a bottle of water. Moreover, offered to pass under the mosque, the graves themselves descendants, not to layout on the surface. The attendant who works there said that his memory for 10 years of work, I first Russian held there. Once, in a conversation with locals, it turned out that nobody was. It is a miracle)
