THE ORDUBAD ICE-HOUSE

THE ORDUBAD ICE-HOUSE

It is an architectural monument of the XIV century, in the center of Ordubad. It was restored again in the XVIII century. The total area of the building is 166m2, the building consists of a large room, 36 stairs of 2 marches, and a cellar where ice was kept inside of the entrance. The total height of the building is 11,3m. In order to defend from hot in summer, the local people used this ice-house to save their products and personal food. The ice produce was carried out in winter by means of water filling the ice – house. In order not to defreeze the ice, the people placed chaff into the ice. During summer months special people used to tie felt on their feet and took out the ice out of the ice-house. The right ice-house provided the need of the Ordubad population. Restoration work was held here and on 26 September, 2014, it was opened. Today, the special cuisine of Ordubad is presented in Ordubad Ice House.
