Keygubad Mosque - a mosque-madrasa building adjoining the Darvish Tomb

Baku, April 2, AZERTAC

The Keygubad Mosque was a mosque-madrasa building adjoining the Darvish Tomb. The Tomb is located to the east of the mosque.

The Mosque comprises a praying hall and a small corridor before it. Formerly there were four columns in the centre of the hall to support the dome.

Abbasgulu agha Bakikhanov wrote about teaching and praying by Bakuvi: “The cell where he prayed, the school where he taught and his tomb are there – in the mosque”. According to researcher S. Ashurbayli, Keygubad was the grandfather of Sheykh Ibrahim. Shirvanshah Keygubad was in power from 1317-1343. Only the remains of the foundation and several safe arches for the Keygubad Mosque survive now.
