Caravanserai

Another peculiarity of Sheki is its location. Sheki is situated on the Silk Road. Historically caravans were passing through Sheki. For those who are not sure caravanserai is a place where caravans stopped, people rested and camels got fed.
Sheki Caravanserai is turned into a hotel now. I will post more photos and information about the Silk Route and Caravanserai of Sheki on this blog...

This is a nice photograph and your narrative is very interesting. Do camels still ply this road and stop here or is this in olden days?

Your photos are beautiful, Ayten. Can't wait to see more of Sheki, what a remarkable place! I will visit your blog often (oh, btw, I too started my photo blog last week so good luck to both of us :)

Thank you everyone for your beautiful comments.

Unfortunately no more camels...they are brought sometimes for some festivals.

Good luck with your blog, Fenix.

I have confession to make!! All the photos that I am posting are taken by my husband!!! He is an artist so makes it much better than i do...

Thank you again!
