Ilham Aliyev and First Lady Mehriban Aliyeva visited tombs and house – Imaret complex of Karabakh khans in Aghdam
President of the Republic of Azerbaijan Ilham Aliyev and First Lady Mehriban Aliyeva have visited the tombs and house – Imaret complex of the Karabakh khans in Aghdam.
Special Representative of the President of the Republic of Azerbaijan in the liberated territories of the Karabakh Economic Region (except Shusha district) Emin Huseynov informed the head of state and his spouse of the planned works at the complex.
This historical and architectural monument of the 18th century, consisting of two buildings, is one of the first estates of the khan dynasty. As opposed to other khan’s palaces located across Azerbaijan, it was a luxurious estate. Therefore, it was also called Panah Ali khan’s palace. Like other historical, cultural, and religious monuments in the occupied territories, Panah Ali khan’s palace was desecrated and vandalized by the Armenians. It was used as a stable.
The Imaret cemetery located near the khan’s palace, where many representatives of the dynasty of the Karabakh khans were buried, was also vandalized by the Armenians.
