The information about Aghjabadi district

Aghjabadi district is one of the oldest dwellings of Azerbaijan and its name Aghjabadi stands for “large settlement” (aghja – large, badi - settlement). Material evidence for this area being ancient are the remnants of the human settlements dating back to Neolithic, bronze, ancient periods and the middle ages found in Kamiltapa, Nargiztapa, Garakobar, Yantapa, Galatapa and Gavur channels. Historians compare these hills to the Egyptian pyramids noting that while Gavur channel is assumed to have been repaired by Alexander of Macedon, it is a fact that it was fully repaired by Teymurlang in the 16th century. Carved gravestones with designs dating back to the middle ages are found in graveyards.

Aghjabadi district was created in 1930 and Aghjabadi District People’s Court (presently Aghjabadi District Court) was established that year. Subsequently in 1963 Aghjabadi district was abolished and included in the administration of Aghdam district but became an independent district again in 1965.
