The truth about the Yukhari Govhar Agha Mosque

As a result of the occupation of Shusha by the Armenian armed forces, the Armenians demolished a memorial plaque on the Yukhari Govhar Agha Mosque, written in Azerbaijani. Under the pretext of carrying out repair work, the Armenians changed the interior decoration of the Yukhari Govhar Agha Mosque, and then announced that the monument does not belong to the Azerbaijani people.
As reported in the ANAS National Museum of History of Azerbaijan, photographs from 1934 of the negative fund of the museum reflect the reality that they wanted to hide from the pages of history.
Yukhari Govhar Agha Mosque (Shusha Friday Mosque) the oldest mosque located in the central square of Shushi and built in the city was built from reeds in the 1750s. After Ibrahimkhalil Khan came to power in 1768-1769, a new stone mosque was built on the site of the reed mosque. In the first half of the 19th century, with the financial support of Govkhar Agha, a third mosque with two minarets was built on the site of the dilapidated mosque of Ibrahimkhalil Khan.
