Tours and Excursions


The Great Historical places of Azerbaijan - Absheron Peninsula

Tour of the Ateshgyakh Fire – Worshippers Temple, 3 hours
Departure from Baku at 9.00 AM

The Ateshgyakh Fire - Worshippers Temple (18th century) is located within Greater Baku in the village of Surakhany (9 miles from Baku). The historical roots of the monument go back to the days when Azerbaijan statehood was only taking shape and establishing itself, and Zoroastrianism, the central part in whose ritual is played by fire, was the dominant religion in the country. People worshipped fire, seeking its protection against adversity oppression and begging it for happiness and well being. These ancient fires are believed to have given Azerbaijan its name, which is thought by some researchers to mean “a land of fires”. Medieval Azerbaijan carried on trade and exchanged cultural values with many countries; one of them was India. Thus it happened that these structures were built one after another for a century and a half, from the late 17th to the mid – 19th century. That is why the Ateshgyakh Temple looks not unlike a regular town caravansary – a kind of inn with a large central court, where caravans stopped for the night. As distinct from caravansaries, however, the temple has the altar in its center with tiny cells for the pilgrims lining the walls. The inscriptions on stones set in the walls, made in Sanskrit and Hindi, testify to the Indian origin of the fire-worshippers’ temple at Surakhany. In the course of time, the “eternal fire” of Absheron ceased to be viewed as divine. The heat they give has been placed at the service of the people, and today gas serves people economic and every day needs. And only the place where the fires used to burn still remains in the memory of the people under the name of Ateshgyakh (home of fire). Today the temple is a unique monument of world culture.
The Absheron Peninsula, an extension of the Caucasus Mountains, just 35 miles into the Caspian Sea, the largest inland sea in the world, covering 386, 400 sq. km. (149, 200 sq. miles). The wide plain contains ravines and salt lakes, and some parts are frequently flooded by tides. Vineyards and tea plantations are located here, but the region is particularly noted for its oil deposits.
You will visit the oldest oil producing fields on the Absheron Peninsula, observe the natural gas outlets (Yanar Dag – “Burning Mountain”) and mud volcanoes together with the current on – and offshore fields.
The Absheron Peninsula, being a part of Shirvan, was the site for a peculiar type of defensive structures to have originated and developed due to special social, historical and natural conditions. Vast Gobustan, semi deserts separating the peninsula from the inland country, relatively distant caravan routes, valuable oil and salt resources, and abundant madder and saffron fields the latter being the main export from of old, were the aspects that determined the peculiar development of Absheron and it’s certain economical and political isolation. Need for protection from foreign invaders attracted by natural resources induced local feudal lords to erect fortified castles some of which stand today, too. There are two of them in Mardakan, although it is not built on a hill. This tower is about 25 m tall and has five floors. Within the walls there is a well and receptacles hewn from the rock for storing grain. Near the castle is the 15th century Tuba-Shakha mosque, containing an exhibition dedicated to the castles in the Absherob peninsula. The smaller castle was built in the 13th century and its design is similar to that of the Ramana castle (between Baku and the airport): a round central tower surrounded by a wall. There is a forth castle at Nardaran. 14th century castle, located in the northern extreme of town, with a round tower surrounded by walls, nearby you can enjoy a nice view of the Caspian Sea.

Tours and Excursions

 

The Great Historical places  of Azerbaijan - Gobustan

Tour of Gobustan, duration - 5 hours Departure from Baku at 9.00 AM

Gobustan (the territory of Gobu) is famous for its archeological monuments. Travel 30 miles southwest of Baku along the Caspian shore to the volcanic desert, where rocks covered with drawings stand amidst chaos of stones and mountains. There are more than 4,000 rock drawings left by artists of the Neolithic period. They depict the customs of ancient tribes, hunting scenes and dances, the way they filled the ground, their everyday life. The range of themes is wide and the vividness with which they are executed can well evoke envy in a modern artist. Near Mt. Beyukshad there is a large, stone-enclosed circular plot with an altar in the center, where ritual ceremonies were held. Not far away on the mountainside is a Latin inscription carved more than 2,000 years ago.
The oldest petroglyphs date from the 12th century BC. Later the European invaders also left their marks: inscriptions left by Alexander the Great cohorts in the 4th century BC and 2,000 year old graffiti written by Trajan’s Roman legionnaires. Should you get the perfect photos fill the carvings with toothpaste.
Caves and rock outcroppings surround this village, whose name can be translated as “ravine land”. The spurs of the Great Caucasus Range descent to the Caspian Sea along the Djeirankechmez River. Settled since the 8th millennium BC, the area contains thousands of rock engravings spread over 100 square km depicting hunting scenes, people, ships, constellations, animals, etc.
The petroglyphs of Gobustan were discovered accidentally by quarry workers only in the 1930s. In addition to the rock carvings, traces of Mesolithic period occupation are to be seen, with numerous burial mounds and graves, the most interesting at Firuz, where eleven skeletons were found. Don’t miss the Gaval-Dashy, a resonant stone that rings like gong when struck.

Based on archeological finds and on content of the petroglyphs, recently it has be theorized that a connection exists between the ancient Azeri and the peoples of Scandinavia, which is not surprising at all, since some of the original habitants of the region, the Medes, were not a Turkic people.

Besides being famous for the petroglyphs the Gobustan are also has some amazing landscape, particularly an area filled with mud volcanoes, which provide a quasi-lunar horizon. You can find the most spectacular mud volcanoes about 7 km south of Gobustan near the road to Alat.
Long after you have left Gobustan you will remember the drawings that have come down to us from the remote part.
