Ganja is one of the oldest cities in the Caucasus, and has long been one of the most important in Azerbaijan.
The name Ganja means wide derived from a word "gan" (wide). Ganja is an ancient city of Azerbaijan which is settled in the fifth century.
The reference to Ganja could be found in the book "Kitabi Dada Korkut" ( the historical literature work of Oghuzs, the ancestors of Azerbaijani turks.)
Having been subjected to a seemingly endless stream of invading armies, its name has changed repeatedly over the years.
