Baku, April 6, AZERTAC
Seyid Yahya Murtuza Mosque is another example of Azerbaijan’s rich cultural historical and religious heritage.
Constructed in the 17th century, the Mosque is located in Asaf Zeynalli Street, a former caravan road, in Icharishahar, the architectural ensemble of Baku.
The Mosque bears the name of Seyid Yahya Murtuza, a cleric who built the Mosque at his own expenses, also serving as Akhund, a religious leader of the Mosque.
The tomb of Seyid Yahya Murtuza stands not far from the Mosque entrance, as Seyid Yahya Murtuza’s last will was to be buried in the Mosque’s courtyard. Currently his grave is located next to the entrance door of the Mosque.
The Seyid Yahya Murtuza Mosque was registered as a national monument of state importance by the decree of the Cabinet of Ministers of Azerbaijan on August 2, 2001.
