After having breakfast at the hotel, check out and will depart to Baku, on the way, we will proceed to Shemakha, for so long the capital and trade centre for western Azerbaijan and now a small town. We visit the Grand Mosque, a very large and attractive building from the late 19th century; and the Yedi Gumbez 'Seven Tombs', yet only three of these desecrated octagonal royal tombs remain reasonably complete. They are the 18th-19th century mausoleums of the Khans of Shemakha.

Day 4 - Baku City Tour    (B + L + D)
Today we will have a city tour in Baku with visits to the Martyr's Cemetery located on the higher slopes of the city's west-end. Baku is the largest city in the Caucasus and the capital of Azerbaijan. Baku is on the coast of the Caspian Sea on the southern tip of the Absheron Peninsula.

This is the best place for viewing the city and the Bay of Baku. We proceed to the Old Town 'Iceri Sehir', which is also a fortress. We see the highlights of Iceri Sehir including the Palace of the Shirvans which is the most striking example of the Medieval palace structures in Azerbaijan, dating to the middle of 15th century

The Maiden's Tower - the ancient, eight storey fortress originally built as a fire beacon, and the Carpet Museum which is the impressive building located on the seafront. Its collection was enriched with the carpets brought from Shusha Carpet Museum, evacuated before the Armenian advance.

After our lunch in the city restaurant, we continue the tour by visiting the Baku Fire Temple, known locally as the Atashgah. This is a castle-like Hindu temple and monastery complex in Surakhani near Baku. The complex is now a museum and is no longer used as a place of worship. Local legend associates the temple at Surakhany with the Fire temples of Zoroastrianism, but this is presumably based on a misunderstanding of the term Atashgah, which in Azerbaijani is literally any fire-place, but in Zoroastrianism is synonymous with Middle Persian Atashdan, the technical term for the altar-like repository for a sacred wood-fire. Excursion to Yanrdagh.

Today dinner will be arrnaged in Karvansaray. At the end, transfer back to hotel. Overnight at Baku.
