Overview Overview

Being an Islamic state, Azerbaijan has many beautiful mosques and other religious buildings. Our tour of religious diversity will also be dedicated to the fact that ,besides the people, practicing Islam, Baku was also inhabited by dozens of different peoples, belonging to other religions, and, as a result, churches, synagogues and other temples were built here.The tour begins with the most grandiose mosques - Bibi Eybat, Heydar Mosque and Taza Pir, reflecting all the pomposity and grandeur of the East. The tour will go on with visiting three very ancient and important churches, as St. Mary’s church, The Cathedral of the Holy Myrrhbearers of God and the Cathedral of the Nativity of the Holy Virgin. Enjoying the contrast between the Islamic and Christian world, we will end our tour with two Baku synagogues of Georgian and Mountain Jews, and the synagogue of European Jews.

Itinerary
This is a typical itinerary for this product

Stop At: Bibi-Heybat Mosque, Baku Azerbaijan

The Bibi-Heybat Mosque on the outskirts of Baku has an unusual history. First of all, it was built to honor the sister of the 7th Shiite Imam, Ali, and secondly, when the mosque was destroyed during Stalin's rule, legends arose about a woman wrapped in white disappearing down into the sea who would return when times got better. The legends that have grown up around the Bibi-Heybat Mosque are examples of how such narratives in the minds of the community can influence reality later on. A new Mosque has recently been constructed on the same spot and dedicated in July 1998.
