Petroglyphic Drawings on the Terekty-Aulie

Виртуальный тур

The petroglyphs of Terekty-Aulie, stretched out with flat rocky granite remains and dating back to the Bronze Age (the second Millennium before the Christ) are of great interest to scientists. The most popular here are pictures of animals, especially horses as well as camels and bulls. The drawings reflect the Nomadic life of ancient man. Images of hunting wild animals as well as drawings about worship of the Sun can be found here too. What is interesting here, is the technique of drawing itself, where ancient human beings first marked the contour and then pressed the image with gravel.There are plenty of legends connected with Terekty-Aulie petroglyphs, which is why pilgrims and other amateurs of mysticism are frequent guests here.
