This is not just grave 2 on 2 meters in the underground necropolis each burial takes a few hundred meters. The territory is fenced and sign here paid. Local people began to bury their kings at this place in the 3rd century BC and have been doing this for 6 centuries in a row. However, not all rulers got here.
Tombs of the kings
To explore the entire area for a couple of hours. Tomb enmeshed in a network of passages and stairs. It is worth looking at his feet, so as not to fall into the well. There is no cafes or eateries, so rest and meals entirely fall on the shoulders of tourists.
All of the tombs is the exact replica of the houses in which they lived kings. Some built right with colonnades, courtyards and sculptures. In the centre of the whole complex is square.
The most interesting things hidden in the dungeon. Here you can find crosses, wall paintings, different images, which has left Christians. They hid from persecutors and traced the letters.
Tombs of the kings
Unfortunately, to date, non-devastated remained only two tombs. The rest was pulled apart by vandals. Look these tacky territory. That could save local authorities retained. The rest is hidden somewhere in private collections or long melted.
