Been here many times, and a painting that includes its image is on my living room wall. A painting done by a very inventive Azerbaijani painter, by the way, whose paintings can be found in a shop near here… it is indeed a Baku (and thus an Azerbaijani) landmark. I once was in this museum when I saw a young male Cacausian dance group having their photos taken inside this museum. Takes me back… The story of this tower is emblematic of so many things in our lives. We recognize them as being really important, but we don’t know the complete story behind them. Their importance isn’t deiminished by the mystery.
