“Karabakh is the cradle of Azerbaijani culture”: Mamayi Mosque

Baku, December 1, AZERTAC

The Ministry of Culture of Azerbaijan has published an article about Mamayi Mosque as part of the “Karabakh is the cradle of Azerbaijani culture” project.

AZERTAC presents the article.

“The architect of the eponymous mosque built in the Mamayi neighborhood of Shusha in the 19th century, was Karbala Shafi Khan Karabakh.

There was a “guldeste” (tent-shaped booth for muezzin) on the roof of Mamayi Mosque which resembled the other quadrangular house roofs of the residential buildings in Shusha.

Mamayi Mosque functioned as a poetry house during years of soviet power.”
