Garabaghlar Tomb Complex restored

In accordance with the Decree of Chairman of the Supreme Majlis of the Nakhchivan Autonomous Republic dated July 4, 2016 "On Restoration and Investigation of Garabaghlar Tomb Complex", Garabaghlar Tomb Complex, one of the rare examples of Turkic-Islamic culture in Garabaghlar village of Kangarli region, was restored on scientific and historical basis.

On July 5 Garabaghlar Tomb Complex was put into operation after restoration.

Chairman of the Supreme Majlis of Nakhchivan Autonomous Republic Vasif Talibov cut the ribbon symbolizing the opening.

The Chairman of the Supreme Majlis said: The development of the culture of each nation is related to the history of its statehood. The people have a rich culture that has a great history of statehood. Our national leader Heydar Aliyev had said: "There are great states in the world, but they cannot create great monuments. Because along with the architectural value of the monuments, perhaps even greater value for us is the fact that Azerbaijan is an ancient state. It shows not only the richness of architecture, but also how solid and firm our statehood is".

The Chairman of the Supreme Majlis said: Historical monuments in the autonomous republic - castles, palaces and tombs are directly connected to our statehood history. In Nakhchivan, the capital of the Atabegs state of Azerbaijan in the 12th century, it was contributed to the development of culture, especially the art of Ajami Nakhchivani, monuments of world significance have been created. Garabaghlar Tomb Complex, which we gather at its opening ceremony, is a continuation of the architectural school of Ajami Nakhchivan, an example of the outstanding architect, Ahmed Nakhchivani, and our state heritage and cultural wealth that we hand down the present and next generations. When monuments are restored and explored, they become the subject of history. Today, we have to study the monuments not only as our cultural heritage, but also as part of our statehood history. Ministry of Culture and Nakhchivan Branch of the Azerbaijan National Academy of Sciences should further expand researches in Garabaghlar Tomb Complex, collect historical materials, introduce new scientific approaches, and enrich it with exhibits.
