Khinalug is among the oldest continuously inhabited places in the world, with a history spanning over 5,000 years. Because of its high altitude and remoteness, Khinalug managed to survive and withstand many invasions. There are also some other historical places such as a 12th-century mosque, a 15th-century mosque, and several ancient cemeteries between the mountains. Khinalug was included on the World Monuments Fund`s 2008 Watch List of the 100 Most Endangered Sites due to concern over the building of a road between Khinalug and Guba.
