Bobogil shrine (16th century)
This is the best-known shrine in the district. The tombstone located on KP 16 of the road to Lerik and KP 40 of the Lankaran-Lerik highway, has been repeatedly looted in the past. It is connected with Nizamaddin Amir Shahsevar Gilani Kaskari, a prominent scientist of his time. The scientist lived at the time when the ideas of Sufism started spreading in Azerbaijan in the 11th century. There is a 15th century cemetery near the shrine. The person buried here is said to be the grandson of the 7th Imam Museyi Kazim who was from Iran’s Gilan province. After being evicted from there, he settled down and was buried here. The Bobogil place-name is explained as Baba from Gilan. The previous name of the village was Osonkaron, which meant blacksmith houses because blacksmithing was the main occupation here. There are visitors in Bobogil throughout the year. In fact, there are queues of cars stretching for kilometers. On religious holidays, especially the Month of Muharram, the Day of Ashura and Eid al-Adha, people come here to sacrifice lambs. Local people say that those making a wish at the Bobogil shrine are sure to see it come true.
