Alinjagala

Nakhchivan is considered one of the hotbeds of civilization in the East. There are more than a thousand historical and cultural monuments, about sixty of which have global significance status, including the fortress city Alinjagala (Alinja Tower / Alinja Fortress). It is located on the eponymous mountain near the town of Julfa (Nakhchivan Autonomous Republic), and was presumably built in 6-8 centuries.

Today, Alinjagala fascinates with its extraordinary view: walls, start from the very foot of the mountain, rise up to hill, raw after raw, protecting the top, with its residential and other buildings. Next to the monument, there is a museum, which gathers the artifacts found during archaeological excavations. The opening of Alinja Fortress is scheduled in the spring, and this event is expected not only to be of great importance for the history and culture of Azerbaijan, but also serve to attract tourists to the Nakhchivan region.
