The palace is small but it is exquisitely decorated. There is also some beautiful stained glass. A nearby workshop shows how this stained glass is made. Sadly no photographs are allowed but you can buy photographs at the shop.

Khan Serai is a small but impressive historical building.... with nice construction. It is built totally with wood, without any iron nails. The building is beautiful. More impressive, however, is the overall set up of the establishment, with appropriately designed lawns and Chinar trees planted...More

Photos are not allowed inside the Palace but well worth a visit with beautifully painted interior and window glass design. A must see in Sheki.

This is the main historical building in the city so it's a must to visit. I recommend the guided visit in your language because there are several details you can't understand just watching. By the way it looks amazing inside much more than outside.

Probably the best place to visit in Sheki. It's contained within the fortress walls. It's just 2 to get on with the ticket booth close by. You are not allowed to take pictures inside and you have to do a guided tour. The guide did...More
