One of the several caravanserais built in Shusha in the 19th century. It is an important architectural monument of the Republic of the 19th century. This famous caravanserai, known as the Safarov Brothers’ Caravanserai, was built by a prominent Shusha citizen and merchant Haji Murtuza Safarov, in honor of his sons Ahad, Samad, Mursal and Manaf at the end of the 19th century. This caravanserai, named after the Safarov brothers, was one of the largest caravanserai in the city of Shusha. In the construction of this caravanserai, the famous architect of Shusha, Karbalayi Safikhan Garabaghi played a big role. The right and left wings of the caravanserai consisted of two floors, and the central part consisted of three floors. The 1st floor was used as shops and workshops, and the 2nd and 3rd floors were used as a jewelry workshop, restaurant and hotel. After the city of Shusha was invaded by the Armenian Armed Forces, the building of the caravanserai was destroyed. Currently, some ruins remain.
