Soltan Ahmad Palace

Baku, April 18, AZERTAC

Another monument destroyed during the occupation of Lachin district of Azerbaijan by the Armenian armed forces in 1992 is Soltan Ahmad Palace in the village of Soltanlar.

It is estimated that Soltan Ahmad Palace was built in the fourteenth century. It is clear that the palace is surrounded by thick castle walls between the ruins of the complex and the castle had a high tower. There was an entrance gate in the southern corner of the castle. The palace has two floors with beautiful arched ceilings attached to thick sidewalls. The palace has a spacious and large hall with a large number of auxiliary rooms and a sofa.

All areas of the village of Soltanlar are rich in mounds, artistic stone samples, tombs, and stone animal figures. There are also the remains of medieval water mills in the area. After the occupation of these territories, Armenians changed the general appearance of the monument, built houses adjacent to the monument, brought horse and ram figures from the village cemetery, and placed them in the yard of the monument.

Lachin district was liberated from occupation on December 1, 2020.
