Back to Ali & Nino Walking Tour Index

This residence was built in 1910-1912. As the house was located near the Old Cemetery, one of Sadikhov's friends complained to him: "You've chosen a very bad place and spent your money stupidly." Sadikhov replied: "Don't be fooled. This is a fine place. The Governor has established a garden for me right under the windows of my home."

The Sadikhov residence combines both Moorish and Azerbaijani architectural elements. This building is not mentioned in the novel but obviously was a well-known landmark at that time.
