Ganja Shah Abbas Caravanserai
Ganja is Azerbaijan's second largest city with a population close of about 325,200. For a short period, Ganja was renamed Abbasabad by Shah Abbas after war against the Ottomans. He built a new city 8 kilometres (5 miles) to the southwest of the old one, but the name changed back to Ganja during the time.
Among the oldest surviving examples of Islamic architecture in Ganja are the Nizami Mausoleum and Shah Abbas Caravanserai, which assisted the Shahs during their siege of the city
Ganja Shah Abbas Caravanserai is one of the unique ancient historical artifacts of Azerbaijani architecture.
