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.

  • I think one of interesting mosques in Baku. A lot of gold, glass and ceramic was used in desingn. Nice place for praying if you are a muslim.  more »
  • One of the beautiful mosques in Baku, although the location is borderline. But the Caspian sea view compensated. Imposing building, you can spend a good hour loosely here. Be sure before once again read the historical milestones. A visit is always worthwhile, is also easily accessible by bus.
