Was Por-Bazhyn fortress an observatory?

Tuvan scientist brought forth a hypothesis that the fortress Por-Bazhyn on an island in lake Tere-Khol, which is one of the entries in the “Nine Treasures” contest, served as an observatory. Candidate of physical – mathematical sciences, Dadar-ool Dan-Syuryun is convinced that the round pottery discs, which the researchers of the Por-Bazhyn fortress call “ornamental tiles”, are nothing else but a schematic depiction of the structure of a solar-lunar calendar of ancient Turk nomads – ancestors of Tuvans.

Zinaida Semis-ool: “Listen to the music of the mountains”

Bai-Taiga entered Charash Dash into the “Tos Ertine” (Nine Treasures) contest. It is a natural wonder, something unusual, supernatural, as if created by a divine power, it is something astonishing, surprising in its originality. There is a small river, taking its origin in a waterfall. There, under water and on the shore, are scattered multicolored stones and pebbles which look like a woman, milking a cow; like a good man – Tuvan, riding a horse; like many tools and utensils of daily use among the arats – nomads, and like animals.

The leopards are in danger of getting shot by the herdsmen in revenge for attacks on domestic livestock. WWF continues to actively work with the herdsmen. The conflict between irbis and people originated when the local shepherds took their herds to graze in areas where this predator lives, and the normal population density of hoofed animals dropped off because of poaching.
