One of these fortresses is Alinja-gala, a famous tower that has still remained unconquerable.

The invincible fortress Alinja-gala reflects the ancient history and culture of our people. The unconquerable fortress, which has been preserved through the centuries, now revives in its original form as the ongoing restoration, which lasted for two years, is approaching its final stage.

Alinja-gala fortress is located on a mountain slope, west of Khanagah and Alinja villages. It is rising up in a stepped form, completely covering the top.

"This fortress was once the residence of the ruler of Nakhchivan Zahida Khatun. In ancient sources Alinja-gala was known as "Erindzhik", "Alandzhik", "Alyndzha" and under several other names.

The first mentions date back to sixth century sources. The oldest of them is Kitabi Dede Qorqud epos. For those, who wants to touch the ancient history, to feel the spirit of courage and invincibility, Alinja-gala fortress is one of the best places to visit.
