Caravansarai, . This building was constructed by the Sheki Khans to house caravans as they passed through on the Silk Road to and from China. This was one of 5 such stops in Azerbaijan during the 18th and 19th centuries, and was the biggest caravanserai on the Silk Road in the entire Transcaucasus region. To this day, it still serves as a place for travellers to stay and eat, and also as a place where one can simply admire its beautiful architecture.
Khansarai (Palace of the Sheki Khans), (on the upper main historical monument reserve), this palace, along with the Caravansarai, is one of Sheki's true must-sees.
