4.5/5 based on 800+ reviews on the web
Part of the World Heritage-listed ancient walled city, Maiden Tower remains one of nation's most distinctive emblems. Built on a solid rock foundation in the 12th century, the majestic 29.5 m (96 ft) tower seamlessly blends Persian, Arabic, and Ottoman architectural influences into one. Its massive foundations plunge 15 m (49.2 ft) below ground and may date back as far as the 4th century CE. Explore the mysterious eight-story structure, which houses a water well, an observation deck at the top, and a museum containing many relics and stories of the city's evolution throughout history. The tower also contains shops and cafes. Plan your Maiden Tower visit and explore what else you can see and do in Baku using our Baku vacation planner.

  • Hündürlüyü 28 m, diametri birinci mərtəbədə 16,5 m-dir. Birinci mərtəbədə divarın qalınlığı 5 m-ə çatır. Qalanın daxili hissəsi 8 mərtəbəyə bölünür. Hər mərtəbə yоnma daşlarla tikilmiş, günbəz fоrmalı tavanla örtülmüşdür. Qala 1964-cü ildən muzey kimi fəaliyyət göstərməyə başlamış, 2000-ci ildə UNESCO-nun Ümumdünya irsi siyahısına salınmışdır.
  • On left side from this tower was standing 17 century armenian church with armenian merchants caravansaray(still standing). Church was demolished in 1993.
