GANJA

Ganja is Azerbaijan’s second largest city with a population of around 325,200. It  named Elisabethpol in the Russian Empire period. So the city regained its original name, Ganja, and  in 1920 during the first part of its incorporation into the Sovet Union. However, its name changed again in 1935  to Kirovabad and retained that name through most of the rest of the Soviet period. In conclusion in 1989, during Perestroika, finally  the city regained its original name.

Islamic Time

Even though some sources from medieval Islamic time attribute the building of the town to a Muslim Arab ruler, so modern historians believe that the fact that the name Ganja derives from the New Persian ganj (“treasure”) and in Arabic source the name  recorded as Janza (from the Middle Persian ganza) suggests that the city existed in pre-Islamic times and  likely founded in the 5th century. The area in which Ganja located  known as Arran from the 9th to 12th century; its urban population spoke mainly in the Persian language.
