More about The Palace of the Shirvanshahs

The main building of the complex was started in 1411 by Shirvanshah Sheykh Ibrahim I. The two-storey building of the palace numbers about 50 different dimensions and outlines of the constructions connected with 3 narrow winding staircases. The big lancet portal directly leads from the courtyard to the second floor, into a high octahedral lodging covered with a cupola. The Shirvanshahs' Palace complex was declared a museum-reserve in 1964 and was taken under the protection of the state. Major renovation works took place in 2001 and 2002 under World Bank financing. Minor renovation works are still ongoing.
