Momine Khatun Mausoleum

Vahe Armenia
Masterpiece of Ajami Nakhchivani is the Momina-Khatun's mausoleum, also known as the Atabey's Cupola - Atabei Gumbazi. Mausoleum is constructed in honor of Momine Khatun who was wife of either Atabag Shamsaddin Eldegiz himself, or that of his son Jahan Pahlavan. The date, indicated on the walls, tells us that this ten-sided monument was constructed in 1186-1187 AD. Surface of each side is completely covered by the ornaments. In spite of the fact that the upper parts of this structure have some destruction, its height today is more than 25 meters. Here also exists an underground vault and a burial place or sardaba. #Ajami_Nakhchivani #Armenia #Azerbaijan #Azerbaiyán #Azərbaycan #Haiastan #Iran #Iranian #Iranio #iraní #İslam #islamic #islamico #mausoleo #mausoleum #medieval #Mumine_Khatun #muslim #Nahçıvan #Nakhchivan #Naxçıvan #persa #persian #tomb #tumba #Əcəmi_Naxçıvani #Азербайджан #Армения #Иран #Ислам #Мавзолей #Момине #Нахичевань #персидская #хатун #Ադրբեջան #իսլամ #Իրան #Իրանական #Հայաստան #Նախիջևան #պարսկական #إسلام #ایران #عجمی_ابن_ابوبکر
