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.

    The place is very beautiful. View on Baku and its surroundings. The mosque itself is very beautiful. Managed to get inside. We are not Muslims. But met thee who truly served inside. We all told, showed. It was very interesting, because the inside of the mosque was hit the first time. The beauty of the fairytale. Very recommend.

    Interior was divided into three rooms. Central graves of the descendants of Muhammad? , Was a place of worship for both sides by gender. It was about a little care one can peek at the interest of tourists, and eager to give their prayers and solemn and sacred location. There several steps until it reaches the mosque, wheelchair was allowed in the mosque.

    When going south of Baku, a quick stop at the mosque is worthwhile. The exterior is beautiful, and there are interesting views of the Caspian Sea as well as Baku City in the distance.  more »

Where to stay in Baku

Baku's emphasis on architectural diversity--and its fondness for constructions that put all previous buildings to shame--has yielded a range of accommodations. Look no further than the waterfront high-rises for contemporary luxury, or take a peek at the more storied surrounding boulevards for 19th-century class, with grand hotels and stylish boutiques set in Baroque and neoclassical buildings. A smattering of budget-friendly hostels and guesthouses lies throughout the city, particularly on side streets close to the main attractions and train stations.
