The Palace of Shirvanshahs is one of the pearls of Azerbaijani architecture. It includes a historical complex, the palace, a divankhana, the Shirvanshah's room, a palace mosque with minarets, bath house, a room of Seyid Yahya Bakuvi, and the Western divankhana monuments, which were built during a later stage.
The complex construction began in 1441, while the Western divankhana was completed by architect Amirshah in 1558.
Some scholars have speculated that the Ateshgah may have been an ancient Zoroastrian shrine that was decimated by invading Islamic armies during the Muslim conquest of Persia and its neighboring regions.
The complex was turned into a museum in 1975 and now receives 15,000 visitors a year.
