Activities in Aghsu

Yeni Shamakhy – Ruined City

When modern Aghsu was newly founded, it was called Yeni Shamakhy, which was founded at a distance of 4 km from its current location. After Nadir Shah razed Shamakhy to the ground in 1734, he ordered the surviving residents of the city to move here. Historical sources describe this event in the following way: “Nadir Shah founded a new city called Aghsu in a geographically favorable place at a distance of 4 agajligs (37 km) from the city of Shamakhy in May 1735. Fences were built around the city in a short period of time. The ancient population of the city was moved here and Aghsu became a center for Shirvan rulers.”
