Initially, the peninsula was called the Absheron Cape, after the small village Absheron, which existed until the 20s of the XVIII century. It is believed that the word "Absheron" comes from the phrase "salty water" (in the ancient language of tats - "ab" - water, "sheron" - salty).

The Absheron Peninsula is also a territory where they found numerous evidence for the habitation of ancient people. In 1936, a flint core was found near the shore of the Zikh lake, resembling a tool of Paleolithic man. And in the area between Bibi-Heybat and Bailov, archaeologists found rock paintings of the oxen, similar to Gobustans. Images of dancing people are the first monument on Absheron, referring to the transition period from the Stone Age to the beginning of Bronze, and the drawings of goats and other animals date back to the beginning of the 1st millennium BC.

In this region we will visit:

In its present form, the temple was built in the XVII-XVIII centuries. It was built by a Hindu community living in Baku belonging to the Sikh caste.

Further, our path lies in Gobustan. The word "Gobustan" comes from two words "gobu" and "camp". “Stan” means “place”, and the word “gobu” from the Turkic language translates as “dried up wide riverbed” or “ravine”. There is a huge amount of evidence of human life, from the X-VIII millennium BC to the Middle Ages - rock paintings, ruins of ancient people, as well as a huge prehistoric cromlech. In addition, the Gobustan cliffs keep the memory of the presence of Roman legionnaires. The first archaeological excavations on the territory of the reserve were carried out in the 30s. XX century It was then that about 3,500 rock signs, images and drawings were found, as well as holes in the rocks and man-made pits.

Of particular interest is one of the monuments of this archaeological reserve, the Gavaldash stone, located in the northeast of the slope of the Jingirdag mountain. At blows the stone makes different surprising harmonious sounds. According to scientists, this is due to the air cushion, which somehow is located directly under the "musical instrument".

On the rocks of Gobustan, you can see more than 400 ancient cup hollows, which were made with solid stone tools. Researchers attribute these grooves to the Neolithic period. Holes were used to collect rainwater, blood of sacrificed animals and for other purposes.

Near this reserve are the famous mud volcanoes and lakes. We will expect that the weather conditions will allow us to enjoy this unearthly fascinating spectacle in all its glory.
