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!

Damjili spring

The famous Azerbaijani poet Samad Vurgun called spring Damjily the eighth wonder of the world and the first miracle of Azerbaijan. Damjily is a picturesque area and a favorite vacation spot. It is the main holiday site in the district, and this place is definitely shown to guests. With the onset of summer, dozens of Gazakh residents come here to picnic. Damjili used to be a shrine.

Spring is located at the foot of the mountain Avey in the cave. A carpet from plants has been woven on the rock. Water dripping from it is drinkable. Clear and pure cold water is dripping from huge 1000 metre high rocks and become a spring by collecting in a bowl down below.

The word "Damjili" means "dripping".
