The city of Shaki in northern Azerbaijan is situated more than 300 km from Baku—too far away for most tourists to make the trip, but is home to the most valuable monument to the Shaki khanate which ruled over the country for more than 75 years in the 18th and 19th centuries.

Shaki was the capital of the Shaki khanate, whose seat of power was in the Palace of Shaki Khans, which was also the summer residence of Shaki Khans. The Palace, known for its magnificent interior and exterior decorated with frescoes and exquisite stained glass work, was built in 1762 by Muhammed Hasan Khan during his first tenure as a ruler.
