The President of Azerbaijan, Ilham Aliyev and the First Lady Mehriban Aliyeva are regular visitors to Mir Movsum Aga's sanctuary. The First Lady once donated a carpet decorated with an image of Movsum Mir Aga that was made by painter Kamil Aliyev to the sanctuary. In 2011, historian Tarana Jabiyeva wrote a book about Mir Movsum Agha called "Eternal resident of Icheri-Shahar" that was presented by the Union of Writers of Azerbaijan.
