With a nice architecture and trees and flowers around it you can enjoy ur time there. The yard is free to see but inside the building it has entrance fee.

Even though photography wasn’t allowed inside the Khan’s Summer Palace, I still have vivid mental recollections of the elaborate decor and colors—it was like we were time travelers and could imagine what life was like centuries ago. Also a good place to escape the summer...More

The building is beautiful but it’s not a palace. I have driven to Sheki from Gabala 1 hour and was expecting to see something Interesting. Basically, it doesn’t worth to drive to it and the internal guide can’t explain the story behind it as well...More

Nothing inside the house that was worth anything is left (Russians took it according to our guide), but the building itself is beautiful with multi-colored windows, beautiful frescos.

Any fan of old styles of architecture will love this place. The stained glass windows are a highlight. I recommend walking there from the center of town in order to get a feel of the city.

The palace is small, one can say, miniature, and so amazing with its splendor that the eye can not be taken. Indeed, a painted lacquer box. The walls are decorated with geometric patterns, floral ornaments and intricate mosaic patterns. I especially liked the frieze with...More
