"The Barda Mausoleum"

The Barda Mausoleum is located in the centre of Barda, in the Torpaggala complex. The mausoleum was built in 1322 by the architect Ahmed Ayub Hafiz. It is also called the “Nushab fortress”. Over 200 words “Allah” are written on the Bard’s mausoleum, and the word can be read from all sides. For this reason, the tomb is also called “Allah-Allah”.
Supposedly the mausoleum was built for a man of the Elkhanid dynasty. The mausoleum is circular in shape. Bricks and turquoise-coloured glaze were used in the construction of the mausoleum. The mausoleum is 13 metres high and consists of a cylindrical tower and a cone-shaped dome, decorated with colourful carved mosaics, divided into an underground part and an aboveground part. In the 1960s, renovation work was done here. However, due to improper restoration work, the appearance of the mausoleum has undergone changes. In 2012, restoration work began on the mausoleum, and it has been operational since 2018. Mausoleum of the Bard is considered to be a world famous monument of architecture.
