  • Momina Khatun was wife of King. So it's a queen's tomb of 12th century. Underground burial chamber is also accessible
  • Stunning structure and beautiful views
  • It is a great place in Naxcivan and its landmark. I visit it two years ago. It was terrific place. Momine khatun was the wife of Naxcivan ruler. He made this place as a memorial of his wife but he died before the bulding making finish. His son continues his fathers made.
  • Marvelous Persian architecture
  • Super!
