An ancient church near the Khansarai now a museum

My guide recommended that we spend the twenty odd minutes we still need to wait to enter the Khansarai by visiting this nearby quaint, if rather basic and overpriced (AZN 2) musuem, housed in an pretty old church. Notes about the church itself is not available, though I did see a reference to it as the Caucasian Albanian Church. It is not in use now, but the interior displays a mish mash of local implements and instruments. (Sheki, Azerbaijan, Sept. 2017)
