Agdam is a desolate ghost town and a former district capital of Azerbaijan. The former capital was abandoned at the end of the 20th century when it was overtaken by dangerous conflict. After the war, combatants completely destroyed the town with shells to scare the citizens from ever returning. Desperate locals later looted everything possible from the town for building materials and supplies, except for the contents of the city mosque. Besides the mosque, the city is entirely in ruins, with trees and plant life overtaking the crumbling, rusting buildings. Explorers through the war-torn area are often taken aback by the rotting paint and facades on the town buildings, including a quaint bread museum that now stands empty and torn apart.
