There are many historical places to see in Sheki, and this is one of them. The most breathtaking for me was the work of medieval carpenters who could produce such beautiful shebeke.

This palace was created to impress then,and it still does,not because of size or opulence but because of the artistic skill used to surround the official visitors with the beauty of the floral and geometric designs. The stained glass and lattice wood windows were pieced...More

This palace is the symbol of Shaki, where the khan spent his time during summer. The winter palace of the khan, is in another part of the city and not so far from the summer palace.

This palace is worth the visit, and should include the visit of Sheki town, the Caravenserai, and the Albanian church. The details are extraordinary: the windows, the paintings, the mirror work, just perfect. Reminded me of Iran's palaces.

This palace is the highlight of the city and castle, although it's only just a few rooms, and lacks the splendour of the respective Iranian Qajar monuments.

Very beautiful palace, specially for people who haven´t gone to Iran. Outstanding paintings! Unfortunately, you cannot take pictures inside :( It is only possible to visit with a guide, that apparently is always there.
