The Arc de Triomphe is also installed in the park. This park is one of the most favorite places for the pastime of Ganja residents and guests of the city.
Khan’s Garden is one of the oldest places in Ganja located in the city center. As I’ve mentioned before, the center of Ganja is not very large. Upon entering the Khan’s garden, you will find yourself in a green oasis, fenced off from the city noise. Here you can only hear the birds chirping. In this part of the city, you can find people of all ages. If you ever come to Ganja, be sure to visit it.
