This week, in Postcards from Azerbaijan, it is time to look up at an impressive structure.
The Momine Khatun Mausoleum dominates the skyline of the city of Nakhchivan.
It was built in 1186 in honour of Momine Khatun who played an important role in local political life.
Architect Ajami Nakhchivani created 10 decorated facets and his masterpiece became an architectural treasure.
"Today 26 metres high, the mausoleum was originally 9 metres higher, crowned with a dome shaped as a tent,” explained Postcards reporter Galina Polonskaya, on her visit to the picturesque region.
