Galaalti Sanatorium

Galaalti Sanatorium

Galaalti region

Devechi, now a small town (now called Shabran), lives 122 kilometers from the Azerbaijani capital, Baku. The word Devechi means a person who keeps camels. However, it is not possible to find camels here these days, although at one time this city was the main stop for large caravans.

Devechi district is bordered on the east by the Caspian Sea. Here, the sandy coast flows smoothly to the heights and then to the forested mountains. The total area of РІР‚‹вЂвЂ№Devechi forests is 21.5 thousand hectares. The region is rich in mineral waters and mud volcanoes.

There are two historical and archeological reserves in the region. When we talk about Devechi, you will involuntarily remember Chiraggala fortress. The area called Galaalti got its name for this reason, because it is located under the Chirag fortress.

 Galaalti is an original and extremely attractive balneological resort in Azerbaijan. It is located at an altitude of 1000 m above sea level in the picturesque foothills of the Greater Caucasus. It is a place with crystal clear air, special natural beauty, and attractive forested slopes on the shores of the Caspian Sea. Here, the mountain air combines with the sea air, creating a low-humidity climate where people feel comfortable.

Galaalti mineral water

What scientists say about this water?

If we look at some parts of the article "Therapeutic water" by Doctor of Medical Sciences, Professor D.Huseynov ("Soviet village", August 26, 1975), we see that the scientist writes here: "At the top of the village called Galaalti, 20 km from Devechi region (now it is called Shabran), In 1969, new mineral water was discovered in one of the most healing corners of the foothills. Seven sources of this water have been identified in the forest. They also have large reserves. Water flow rate is more than 10,000 liters per minute. Hydrogeological, physicochemical and biochemical studies have shown that the mineral water of Galaalti water is the same as that of Naftusiya in Transcarpathia (Truskavets). Until Galaalti mineral water was discovered, it was considered to be the only Truskavetsi Naftusiya water in our country. Now a similar one has been found and it is called Galaalti mineral water.

The late academician Hasan Aliyev, who left a deep mark on the memory of the Azerbaijani people with his free services, paid special attention to the protection of unique historical and natural monuments in this country in his book "Drum of Alarm". The academician wrote: "Chiraggala, known as an ancient cultural and historical monument, is now known as" Galaalti "or" Chiraggala "resort" Azerbaijan "Naphthasia" ... "Galaalti" or "Chiraggala" resort due to its natural conditions and climate and also superior to all Caucasian resorts.

It is also interesting what the director of the Research Institute of Medical Rehabilitation of the Ministry of Health, Honored Scientist, Professor Alisher Musayev said about the "Galaalti" water: "Mountain and sea air mix here and there is no moisture. It is surrounded by forest on all sides. It is also considered to be healing for those suffering from diseases of the metabolism, gastrointestinal tract, gallbladder. At the same time, it expels uric acid from the body. It is not recommended to store too much Galaalti water. This water should be used in its place, and packaging is not recommended. Because after a day, ammonia compounds are formed in this water "
