Sheikh Movlana Yusif lived on the Muskur plain in the 15th century and was a prominent philosopher and trib­al leader. Abbasgulu aga Bakikhanov recorded in his work “Gulistani Iram”: Sheikh Molla Yusif of Muskur was born in the 8th century of the hijrah. After receiving his preliminary education in Muskur, he visited Sheikh Yahya Bakuvi, studied sciences and received his bless­ing. After returning to Muskur, he pro­moted his teaching and then handed over leadership to Sheikh Muhammad. The village where the sheikh’s grave is situated and his family lived is called Seykhlar. His only work that survived to date is Bayan ul-Asrar (Explanation of Secrets), which he wrote in Arabic, and its focuses on human spirituality and morality. Seyid Yahya Bakuvi was one of the leaders of the Khalvatiyyah Sufi denomination and made great efforts to spread it in the Middle East. One of his followers and great philosopher, Sheikh Yusif made great efforts to spread the Khalvatiyyah denomination in the GubaKhachmaz zone.

It is a village and station in Khachmaz. It used to be a road used by nomadic tribes on the Dagestani border. In order to repel their attacks, a Caspian littoral defensive fortification was built, stretc­hing to present-day Khachmaz. One of these castles was Khudat . In the early 18th century, Khudat was the capital of the Guba Khanate. After Fatali Khan’s residency was moved to Guba in 1735, Khudat lost its importance. The word Khudat means “God’s gift”. Since it is a very old settlement, people called “Old Khudat ”. Although it is a provincial town, Khudat is well-developed and is known as a “modern village”. There are great drinking water reserves here. In 1904, discussions began on the building of a water pipeline from the local village of Shollar to Baku…

Captivating Yalama, which is situated in Khachmaz at a distance of 200 km from Baku, is the only forest that stretches to the Caspian coast. Since it is the only fo­rest washed by the sea, it is called Yala­ma. With the help of the World Wildlife Fund, it is planned to set up a national park based on the Yalama woods. The unprecedented natural-geographical landscape and healthy climatic conditi­ons in the Yalama-Nabran region open great opportunities for the develop­ment of tourism in this region. Nabran is the most popular tourist centre in the Guba-Khachmaz zone.

It is another historical-strategic site in Khachmaz. Beginning from the 16th century, the port started to play an im­portant role in establishing relations between Azerbaijan and neighbouring countries by sea. Despite disagreements between states, the Volga-Caspian tra­de route expanded trade relations with northern countries. The region exported silk, crafts and dried fruit to northern co­untries. A significant innovation in Cas­pian trade was that Shirvan established extensive trade relations with Western European countries, which also involved Genoese and Venetian merchants.

It must be noted that this railway was the first to deliver water to the centre and the rest of the district. The tower of the water reservoir, which was built in 1903, attracts attention with its architec­tural structure. The Absheron peninsula, which was suffering from a shortage of water, and Baku, an oil-rich city which gradually expanded due to the rapid development of capitalism, received drinking water by railway from Khach­maz, a district rich in freshwater springs. The water tower at the station was used as a water reservoir. From here, water was filled into tanks and was sent to the capital by railway.

(English) Nabran

The first thing people think of when they hear about Nabran is the sea and the be­ach. In fact, Nabran, one of the quietest villages in Khachmaz, was first discovered as a resort in the 1960s. On the initiative of the then Trade Unions, boarding ho­uses were built for factory workers here in order to provide them with a holiday destination. The Khazar tourist base was opened in Nabran in 1963 and Dostlug in 1975. In the second half of the past cen­tury, this area was visited by people from elsewhere. In the 1990s when the road to popular resorts such as Shusha and Kalbajar was closed after the occupation of Nagorno-Karabakh, Nabran became even more important.

Surrounded by a beach and coastal ho­tels and with its views of the sea and forests, Nabran is known as the most popular and expensive holiday desti­nation in the country. When compared with other areas, the tourist infrastruc­ture is more developed here. There is everything necessary for a perfect sum­mer holiday here: clean air, sea, sand, sunlight, woods, beaches on the dayti­me and discotheques that open on the beach in the evenings make a holiday in Nabran even more entertaining. To­urist bases, boarding houses, recreation houses and hotels with different prices have been built in this area where beac­hes merge with forests, and this makes Nabran the biggest tourist base in the country. The growing demand for this place results in local villagers gradually leaving Nabran. Falling for very attrac­tive offers made by businessmen who invest in the tourist sector, they sell the­ir houses and move out of here. Those who still remain here open their doors to tourists in summer. Those who can­not find accommodation in hotels and boarding houses can ask Nabran resi­dents for help.
