Azerbaijan, Baku, Oct. 31 / trend I. Isabalayeva /
An underground museum will be opened in Azerbaijani city of Ganja, the website of the Azerbaijani National Academy of Sciences said on Wednesday.
The underground roads for the phaetons were accidentally discovered during excavations on the Heydar Aliyev prospect in Ganja. Historians have already started researching.
An underground museum is planned to be established after the restoration operations are over in Ganja.

It was revealed that these roads were built by prominent poet, theologian and architect Sheikh Bahaddin Muhammad upon the order of Shah Abbas I from the Safavid dynasty.
