Gobustan Rock Art Cultural Landscape
The Gobustan Rock Art Cultural Landscape (area of 3096 hectares) south of Baku features historical people campgrounds and 6000 rock drawings located in an area of 537 hectares. The oldest drawings date back to the Middle Stone Age. Most come from the Bronze Age. The drawings reflect the centuries-old experience of ancient tribes, their cult/religious and aesthetic views.
There is also a stone slab with a Roman inscription which dates to the first century and a unique Gaval-dash (tambourine stone). The stone produces pronounced rhythmic motives when tapped.
