The brochures «The Iravan Khanate: Iravan Fortress – the Fortress of Heroism" and “Rulers of Chukhursad and Khans of Iravan” were written by scientific worker Guntekin Najafli.
In his speech, Makhmudov said that the modern Armenia is located on territory of Azerbaijan’s Iravan khanate.
“After moving to Azerbaijani lands, Armenian vandals destroyed hundreds of unique architectural gems. More than 300 mosque, minarets, tombs, worship places had been left under ruins", he said.
The brochure "The Iravan Khanate: Mosques of Iravan" tells the bitter fate of a mosque belonging to the Azerbaijani people destroyed by Armenians.
Next brochure, "The Iravan Khanate: Khan’s Palace wiped out by Armenian vandals" once again proves that Armenia doesn't has any historical monument on its territory.
"The Iravan Khanate: Iravan Fortress – the Fortress of Heroism” was published in memory of fortress' defenders.
