A must visit place in Sheki, to see how Khans(Rulers) at that time used to live, also they have very nice craftsman school over there where they make exclusive items.

All i can say, if you are in Sheki you must visit this place. But not sure if everyone will like it. The architecture itself is great and amazing but taking photos are not allowed and nothing much to look.

It's an interesting place for sure, but plan on standing in line and waiting to get in. We were in September and the place was till very crowded, much to my surprise.

Very disappointing, we had read so much about this place. Beautiful windows with traditional coloured glass , but all the rooms were empty. A visit that literally took 5 minutes.

Having been assured by our guidebook and many Bakuvians that this was one of the most stunning sites in Azerbaijan, and having been mesmerised by the Khan’s palaces of Bukhara and Khiva, I had high hopes for Sheki. Unfortunately they were not met. The whole...More
