The palace mosque and the palace house (hamam) are worth a visit. This was built by the Shirvanshah dynasty in the 15th century and includes the main building,Diwan Khana, The Masoleum etc

If you are in the old city, it worth the visit! The construction shows how the former royal family used to live there! Price 5,0 manat!

There were a few interesting exhibits here, but it wasn't as well designed or displayed as other museums in the city. It was also a bit of an uphill walk over mostly cobblestones - that might have influenced my opinion. Good views from there.

Lots of history but not a lot to see. Or maybe we were just tired after a very long flight. We enjoyed the views from the palace garden more than we appreciated the artifacts and relics of the palace.
