Mashadi Shukur Mirsiyab caused to build a large hall on the second floor of the two-storey caravanserai belonging to the 19tth century for the purpose of the mosque. Built near the central square of the city, this caravanserai with a mosque differs from other caravansaries by its size and architectural solution. The rooms on the first floor of Mashadi Shukur Mirsiyab’s caravanserai was formerly used as a shop, and the spacious and light rooms on the second floor were allotted for administrative works, entertainment of guests and other services. As there was a mosque in the caravanserai, the Muslim merchants sought to rest here. Its architect was the famous Karabakh architect Karbalayi Safikhan Karabaghi. After the occupation by Armenian armed forces in 1992, the caravanserai building was damaged.
