Memorial Museum of Sari Ashiq

In 1989, the memorial museum of the bayati (a kind of Azerbaijani poem created by people) master Sari Ashiq lived in the 17th century, was opened in Gulabird village of Lachin region. At that time, a total of 150 items reminiscent of Sari Ashiq were handed over to the museum. The monument of Sari Ashiq was erected there.

The main activity of the museum was to work for the preservation of the memorized bayatis, sayings of Sari Ashiq, originally from the village of Gulabird, and to pass them on to future generations.

As a result of the occupation of Lachin region by the Armenian Armed Forces in 1992, the museum building and nearly 200 exhibits were destroyed and plundered.
