Galakand is located at the foot of Mount Shahdagh on the bank of the Shamkir River. The place is interpreted as a noisy roadside place. Gala is also the name of a Kipchak tribe.The village, which is situated too far from the town in the mountains and dense forests, is a real ethnic museum. There are 11 monasteries in Galakand alone. Almost all homes in the village have medieval maps. A villager discovered a big piece of concrete as he tried to plant potatoes in his courtyard. It was a big tombstone with big and decorative crosses and inscriptions in an ancient alphabet. Getting a shovel and digging out works left over from the antique period is regarded as normal here. A resident of the village, Bakir Mammadov, has collected all the ancient things he has found in the area. As we entered his house, we thought that we were in a history and ethnography museum. Jugs of various sizes, ceramic dishes, various metal coins, jewels and all types of spears, knives and weapons are available there.
