Mount Dogee is among the candidates for the chief “Treasure of Tuva”

Tos ErtineThe very first object to be submitted to the “Nine Treasures” contest was Mount Dogee, located near Kyzyl. A veteran journalist, honorable citizen of Kyzyl, Kara-Kuske Choodu, told of the secrets of this well-known, yet, as it turned out, unknown mountain. She has always been a place of veneration, and every year, rituals of sanctification have taken place here. Multiple ovaa on the mountain were destroyed by the revolutionaries during anti-religious campaigns in the 30’s of the last century.

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.
