The palace is located in the Old City and you can find really appealing objects if you are interested in historical matters. It includes different buildings such as bathroom, tombs of the Shirvan nobilities, and imperial mosque.

It is a palace complex, with a mosque and even dervish cells. Exposition is also quite good. You can and should hire a guide, which is cheap.

This palace is the most important attraction of Baku city and you have to visit it with guided Tour. A lot of Middle East's symbols are prepared there to show to other nationalities
