Acquaintance with the Works Carried out in the House of Tar Performer Sadigjan

On May 10, President of the Republic of Azerbaijan Ilham Aliyev and First Lady Mehriban Aliyeva got acquainted with the restoration work carried out in the house where Sadigjan, a famous tar performer, composer, and artist, who improved Azerbaijani tar, once lived.

The building, located in the center of Shusha city, in the Mardinli neighborhood, has lost up to 80 percent of its original appearance. The remaining parts of the building have structural cracks and are in a state of disrepair.

The Heydar Aliyev Foundation will carry out the restoration work in Sadigjan’s house. With a rectangular plan structure, the house has two floors. The building was built in the typical architectural style of Shusha.
