Ateshgah – which means “The place of fire” in Azerbaijani language. This temple of fire-worshipers was constructed in the 17th-18th centuries at Surakhani village.

Yanardag – also known as a burning mountain, with natural gas burning on its slope from ancient times.

Continue to Gobustan national reserve. Explore the cave drawings – petroglyphs from the Stone Age on a rocky massif and visit the outdoor Museum of petroglyphs. Visit a plateau full of mud volcanoes of Gobustan. More than half the world’s mud volcanoes (around 300) are found in Azerbaijan.
