The name of Seven Domes or Yeddi Gumbez – the monument was named after the number of Shirvan rulers’ mausoleums-tombs built here in 18th-19th centuries. Other mausoleums of the group are partly destroyed and are without cupola or walls.
Specifically, in the seven tombs, there are the remains of Mustafa Khan’ family, the last Shamakhi Khan. Each tomb has 3-4 graves with massive tombstones. This ancient monument is protected by the state.
The monument’s name is defined be the number of gravestones in the crypt. Today the gravestones look like half-destroyed stone domes as if grown directly from under the ground in the middle of deserted graveyard.
Therefore the atmosphere of this district seems a little mysterious.
