Photographer's Note

Because of its stunning architecture this building was number one target to be attacked during the Dashnak massacre in Baku in early XX century. Therefore for several years building was standing without roof and windows.
Azerbaijan first became independent at 1918, but the new republic did not have sufficient founds to restore the building and then Soviets came and restored building in most Soviet way, and five angled stars replaced Koranic verses.
Now it is the institute of Manuscripts.
