Kobustan

Overview

Introduction

Caves and rock outcroppings surround this village. Settled since the eighth millennium BC, the area contains thousands of incredible prehistoric petroglyphs depicting hunting scenes, people, animals and even 2,000-year-old graffiti left by Roman legionnaires. The rock paintings are said to be some of the world's best examples of petroglyphs of their sort. Also be sure to see the Gaval-Dashy, a stone that rings like a gong when struck. 45 mi/70 km south of Baku.
