Baku and world religions (19 photos)
The main religion in Azerbaijan is Islam. Islam was spread out here ever since the Aram invasion in the middle ages. Prior to that, the ancestors of Azerbaijanis professed pagan religions (fire worshipping), Zoroastrianism, Manichaeism, Christianity.
Since the fall of the Soviet Union, a period of Islamic revival has begun in Azerbaijan.
Mosques and religious institutes started to open. Since Azerbaijan is a multinational country, there are also a number of other communities. Check out the various mosques in Baku below.
