Anyone who comes to Sheki, goes to see “Markhal” (spelled Marxal in Azerbaijani). Markhal is a place in mountains where one can rest, have tea or food, enjoy the views, cooler weather (especially in the evenings) and life in general. Although there are other nice places to go to in Sheki, Markhal still enjoys the status of the most known resort of the area.
