What To Expect

Guns, snakes, samovar, tea glasses, fruits, cows, deer – what do these have in common? Sofi Hamid Shrine and Cemetery is a place riddling visitors with its unusual symbols and rich saturated colors. If you ask locals, very few will know about its existence. Sofi Hamid tells about the history of Azerbaijan, its culture and shared beliefs of locals much more than any other historical monument of the country. Get ready for unique impressions and haunting memories!

Sofi Hamid will be in the lists of the most unusual cemeteries in the world very soon, competing with Merry Cemetery in Romania or Cimetière du Père Lachaise in Paris.

Top reasons to visit:

  • unique spot to discover colorful artwork of locals based on their beliefs
  • explore how regimes and lives of people have changed throughout the centuries and decades
  • meditative trip around wind-swept plains away from hustle & bustle of the city
  • a must-see for people interested in mysticism, Sufism and art in Soviet era
