The Karabakhlar Mausoleum (Azerbaijani: Qarabağlar türbəsi) is a mausoleum located in Garabaghlar village of Kangarli District of Azerbaijan, about 30 kilometers far from the north-western part of Nakhchivan.

The mausoleum, built in the first half of the 14th century is partially demolished and has a cylindrical form with twelve semicircular facets. The mausoleum, which has a circular form in the inner part, is 30 meters high. Two minarets having quadrangular foundation in the lower part are located about 30 meters from the mausoleum. The minarets of the ensemble belong to the 12th century.[1][2]

The Qarabaghlar Mausoleum is part of a complex including a tomb and two minarets. The minarets is date approximately to the late 12th and early 13th centuries. The little portal carrying the name of Qutui Khatun that connects the two minarets is also datable to the 14th century. It is thought that Qutui Khatun was the wife of Abaqa Khan. It is possible that an architect, who set a goal of building in honor of Qutui Khatun within the new complexes built in the 12th–13th centuries, built this monument then.[3]

The history of the monument and its minarets can be also dated to the 14th century – during the reign of Abu Sa'id Bahadur Khan (1319-1335) for their style and construction methods.[citation needed]
