Aqsu Travel Guide

Edit This The best resource for sights, hotels, restaurants, bars, what to do and see



On the road leading north-east from Kurdamir to the Shemakha road lies the quiet provincial town of Aqsu. Among the main sights, there is the usual History Museum, a recently built Mosque, a memorial to the 20th January massacre and unusually a nice tax office building!

The bus station is on the southern end of the town, not far from the mosque. In the centre you'll find Aqsu Hotel , whith basic but clean facilities.

Aqsu is an agricultural area, with a preserves factory, a grapes' processing plant and a cocoon drying plant.

Maybe more interesting thant the town is the surrounding landscape. North of the town you should enjoy the magnificent views of the Aqsu pass .

To the east of Aqsu you'll find the ruins of the 18th century ' new-Shemakha ' (near the village of Bazavand). South-west of Aqsu is Qaraqoyonlu where you can visit the 19th century Ag Gumbaz tomb.
