Men know that you are mine by birth:
My nest,  my refuge,  and my hearth,
My mother,  native land,  dear earth!
Sever soul and body??  Death but can.
O Azerbaijan,  my Azerbaijan!

Didivan tower

The Didivan tower is erected on a high hill near Khanliglar village. It is assumed that the tower was built in the VI-VII centuries. It is round in shape. The frame of the fortress narrow upwards. Inside it is empty. However, you can see holes for he woods that once made of coverage of storeys. Intervals between the storeys are not equal in size. Height of the fortress is 8.3 m, inner diameter 5.85 and thickness of the walls in the lower part 1 m. Didivan tower served as defence and guard installation in the past. Its high location made it possible to control other defence installations and dwelling places around and quickly inform about imminent danger. This type of medieval observation points are also existed in the valley of Choqaz river and near the Jafarli village.
