Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

The Gosha Gala Tower is the main and northern entry to Icherisheher. The two gates, where once caravans entered and exited are well restored and the gate still carries Baku's original coat of arms.

The main tower gate of the wall of old Baku. Still and entrance for cars running through the city. It may be considered the gate separating 2 different eras

This is an excellent tower which unfortunately during my visit was actually covered whilst restoration work was underway. Perhaps this was also as a result of the recent formula 1 presence.

On a walk through Baku's Old City you will be transported back in mind to ancient times when caravans travelling on the Silk Road had to pass Gosha Gala Tower's gateway. Day dreaming in its pure form!

A very nice tower to view while you walking in the old city. A good place to take some pictures of the area.

The Double Gates portal is one of the main entrances to the Old City. Nice architecturally (fits right in with the rest of the Old City and its walls), and there's a whole bazaar area right inside the gates where you can buy food or souvenirs to your heart's content...

Double arch way gateway to the old town. Parts of the city date back to the 12th century but gates have been modified through the centuries.

Icheri-sheher is the double arched entrance to inner city of old Baku. Originally there was one gate built in the 12th century, a second gate appeared in 1883 when the Gate of Zulfigar Khan was moved here when the front wall of the castle was pulled down. Many of the stones of the demolished castle wall were used to build houses. Don't miss the emblem between the two towers you will see the Shahs Of Shirvan emblem which consists of two Lions facing each other with a Bulls head between them

These impressive double gates are built into the fortress walls of "Ichari Shahar" (Inner City). These gates have many names like Gosha Gala (Twin Gates), Shamakhi Gates because the road leads to this city or Tsitsianashvili Gates due to a historical event that took place here. The right gate was built much later than the left one. These gates have seen many attacks by Mongol, Turkish, Persian troops and Russian army during the reign of Peter I. You can see symbols of lions guarding a bull beneath a sun and a moon. Inscriptions show that these gates were built in 1138/1139 during the reign of Shirvanshah Manichohr III. In those times there were two main gates of Inner City called Gosha Gala Gates and Salyan Gate. The trade caravans coming from Iran entered through Salyan Gate and left via Gosha Gala Gates. Those caravans coming from Russia entered from the Gosha Gala Gates and exited from Salyan Gate. These gates offer great photo opportunities.
