Near Nardaran, in a place called Umid Gaya, a prehistoric observatory was discovered, where on the rock the images of sun and various constellations are carved together with a primitive astronomic table.

Further archeological excavations revealed various prehistoric settlements, native temples, statues and other artifacts within the territory of the modern city and around it.

This is one of the earliest written evidences for Baku.

Baku was the realm of the Shirvanshahs during the 8th century CE.

This is also reflected in the city's nickname as the "City of Winds".

A less probable folk etymology explains the name as deriving from Baghkuy, meaning "God's town".

Officially, about 25 percent of all inhabitants of the country live in Baku's metropolitan area.

Baku is divided into twelve administrative districts (raions) and 48 townships.

Baga (now بغ bagh) and kuy are the Old Persian words for "god" and "town" respectively; the name Baghkuy may be compared with Baghdād ("God-given") in which dād is the Old Persian word for "give".
