This is not an ancient city, this is a reconstruction, set or something else, But it is modern (relatively).

Fake Russian archaeologists.

God bless the America Archaeological Institute.

Aleksandr Alymov (the source) mentions it on his LiveJournal. http://alexandr-alymov.livejournal.com/

Cool nevertheless!

There were two Golden Horde cities that used that name, but the location of the second is somewhat in dispute. And both almost completely disappeared hundreds of years ago, leaving no significant ruins today. The first Sarai is thought to have been found, but links on the net indicate meagre excavated ruins and nothing like what is in those photos. I’m guessing it may really be a reconstruction of a Horde or another different era community; certainly the wooden water wheel has to be.

I wish there was more pictures of inside but still very amazing.

There are remarkable similarities in the construction methods and materials.

Thank you for a fascinating pictorial.

EnglishRussia rules! all of the other sites just drool.

I wouldn’t doubt it if it was or is or has been used for making films. This is an interesting post with the tale and photographs. It’s a very different post too. I like that. Thank You.
