Excursion of the students to the "Garabaghlar Tomb Complex" organized

On July 10, the students of "Nakhchivan" University went on an excursion to Garabaghlar Tomb Complex in Kangarli region organized by the Tourism Department of Nakhchivan Autonomous Republic.

Firstly, director of Nakhchivan Tourism Information Center Gulnara Sadigova noted that state care for historical monuments in the Nakhchivan Autonomous Republic offered wide opportunities for the preservation and promotion of our cultural heritage. In the last 22 years about 70 historical and cultural monuments in the autonomous republic have been overhauled and repaired, more than 1,200 world, national and local importance monuments have been registered. In accordance with the  Decree of the Chairman of the Supreme Majlis of the Nakhchivan Autonomous Republic "On the Restoration and Investigation of Garabaghlar Tomb Complex" dated July 4, 2016, the Garabaghlar Tomb Complex, one of the unique examples of Turkic-Islamic culture in Garabaghlar village of Kangarli region was restored on scientific and historical basis.

It was noted that the purpose of the excursion was to introduce the historical places of the autonomous republic to the young and to increase their activeness in introducing the autonomous republic by sharing photos taken during the excursions by young people in different social networks.

Then the excursion participants got acquainted with the monument. The Garabaghlar Tomb Complex consists of twin-minaret head-span, a tomb and a religious building. The complex was exposed to destruction over time. The main part of the complex is Garabaghlar Tomb, one of the pearls of Nakhchivan architectural school. The architectural features of the tomb, the writing techniques of the inscriptions and other indications prove that this monument is the sample of Nakhchivan architectural school. The tomb belonging to tower shaped types of memorial constructions consists of 12 halfcylindric projections. Garabaghlar tomb about 10 m diameter, reaching 16 m height at present-day condition has 4 head-spans. On the top of each head-span the last part of the 16th verses of the “Al-Mumin” surah of holy Koran was written. Then the students got acquainted with the exhibits at the khanagah. Here are the ancient household items reflecting the lifestyle of our people, and the material and cultural samples found during archaeological excavations in the territory. Earthenware and copper things, stone dastars (hand mills), mortar and pestle reflecting the history, traditions, welfare of our people, including weaving samples made a full impression about the welfare culture of our people. The history of the tandirs (oven made of clay in a hole in the earth) in the building dates to the same time as the history of the complex, reflecting the main activity, traditions and lifestyle of our people for that period. The exposition displays the photographs of the Garabaghlar Tomb Complex before and after the restoration, including the paintings on the "Garabaghlar Tomb" painted on canvas, the books reflecting the history of Nakhchivan and information about the Garabaghlar Tomb Complex.

At the end, the questions of the students were broadly answered.
