About Shusha

The construction of the museum-mausoleum complex of the famous Azerbaijani poet Molla Panah Vagif began in 1977 on the basis of the project of architects A.V Salamzadeh and E.I Kanukov. The complex was opened in January 1982. The complex was built on the tomb of the great poet near the Cidir plain, a prominent place in Shusha. Here M.P. About 80 exhibits reflecting the life of Vagif in Shusha were also exhibited.

The opening of the complex was attended by National Leader Heydar Aliyev, well-known literary and cultural figures.

As a result of the occupation of Shusha by the Armenian Armed Forces in May 1992, the building of the complex and dozens of exhibits on display were destroyed, and possible exhibits were transported to Armenia.

After the liberation of Shusha by the Azerbaijani army on November 8, 2020, Vagif's museum-mausoleum complex was completely restored.

On August 30, 2021, Vagif Poetry Days were reorganized by the Heydar Aliyev Foundation in the poet's hometown.
