Admire impressive minarets of Bibi-Heybat Mosque, a restored historical mosque at the entrance to the city from the airport side. Reopened in 2008, the mosque covers the site of an earlier 13th century mosque that housed the tomb of Ukeyma Khanum, a descendant of Muhammad. With its elaborately decorated interior of green and gold, the mosque features Shirvan architecture with three domes. The old mosque was known as "the mosque of Fatima," as called by French writer Alexander Dumas who traveled here in the 1840s. You can plan Baku trip in no time by asking Inspirock to help create your itinerary.

  • Situated on the road leading to the South, the mosque is quite appealing. Great views of port equipment & Baku, to a cemetery, weather permitting very good photo opportunities.

  • A beautiful mosque in the model. But there's nothing in it but a shrine in the Middle, far from the center of Baku. And sea view

  • Magnificent Mosque perched overlooking the Caspian Sea.. A grand view... A bit far from the city, but it's worth the journey... Separate prayer areas for ladies... Opened during prayer times....  more »

  • The mosque was built over the tomb of the daughter of the seventh Shiite Imam - Musa al-Kazim, who fled to Baku from persecution of caliphs. On the tomb there is carved on a stone inscription indicating that Ukeyma Khanum belongs to the sacred family: "Here was buried Ukeyma Khanum, a descendant of the Prophet Muhammad, the granddaughter of the sixth Imam Ja'far al-Sadiq, the daughter of the Seventh Imam Musei Kazym, sister of the eighth Imam Riza".[1]
  • Beautiful Shiite mosque build on the Caspian Shores
  • It is small, but beautiful for being rebuilt so recently. Limited staff and a nice square outside the Mosque.
  • Serene place .... Loved it
  • Pleasant evening at Pullman Baju
