Admittedly they dated by the early Iron Age. It seems that primordial they have the ritual, sacral meaning. Due to the local legends, in the valley, where the dyns are located, in XVII-XVIII centuries the bloody battle happened here. Exactly here were the main points of two clans, which were at odds with each other. In the 80-th of XX century the restoration of partially ruinous dyns was conducted, owing to the means, which were gathered by local inhabitants.
