Publications associated with the 870th jubilee of Nizami Ganjavi

On the occasion of the 870th jubilee of great Azerbaijani poet and thinker Nizami Ganjavi, the “Khamsa” collection and the book “The History and Destiny of the Nizami Mausoleum” were published with support from the Heydar Aliyev Foundation, the Ministry of Tourism and Culture of the Azerbaijan Republic and the Ganja City Executive Authority.

Printed in a new format, the works included in the “Khamsa” collection are presented in separate books.

Being among the new publications, the book “The History and Destiny of the Nizami Mausoleum”  studies the history of the mausoleum erected at the beginning of the 13th century on the great thinker’s grave. Interesting facts about restorations carried out on the mausoleum at times, which had been repeatedly destroyed as a result of the policies pursued by Iran, Ottoman and Russian Empires in the Caucasus, and works done in this direction have been reflected in the book.

The booklet contains pictures of monuments erected to works included in the “Khamsa”.
