Two-story caravanserai

XIX century’s essential architectural monument. İnventory number: 346

It is a hotel-type two-story caravanserai built in Shusha in the 19th century. In the second half of the nineteenth century, the son of Mashadi Huseyn Mir Sayyaf (Mir Siyab) bought Haji Amiraslan Bey's caravanserai and built a new one on the same spot. For this reason, the locals would call this place as Haji Sayyaf oglu caravansary. After the death of Mashadi Huseyn, his sons Gahraman and Mashadi Shukur started to jointly run the caravanserai. There are 25 shops inside this caravanserai and 25 apartments on the 2nd floor. On the second floor of the caravanserai, at the end of the south wing, a large hall has been designed for the mosque. That mosque is nearly the same size as other Shusha's quarter mosques. During the occupation of Shusha, the building was severely damaged by the Armenian invaders.
