A report called “The toponyms of Gobustan in DedeGorgud” saga” made by dissertator ShakirHamzayev (Gobustanly) was discussed in scientific seminar of the institute.


To his opinion, the territory where “DedeGorgud” saga was originated is Gobustan. Dissertator showed that the toponyms met in the different stories of saga are systematically distributed in the territory of Gobustan. He tries to prove that the “DedeGorgud” saga has been createdin a vast territory stretched from Derbend to Gobustan and from Gobustan to Shaki.
