In the center of a mountain valley there is village Dargavs ( “valley defender” ), known for its historical and architectural landmarks – battle towers and a “town of the dead”. The town of the dead is a complex of 99 half underground (9-17 centuries) and ground (14-18 centuries) stone crypts that served as family vaults. Crypts have forms similar to towers. The dead were buried in full dresses with small household things. It is also known that during the plague in the Middle Ages, many infected people voluntarily went  to vaults of their families to meet the end.

Due to an exceptional dryness of the local climate, good ventilation and heat, bodies were mummified and well remained. And now the vaults are filled with human bones, but despite the protection of UNESCO, burial places are greatly pillaged.

    • How’s Georgia going to recover this region?

      I suppose when all the Russians have aborted and drunk themselves to death then it will be possible.

      • YA skazal, chto oni predʺyavyat prava na Osetiyu. Ne to, chtoby oni mogut poluchitʹ obratno ili vozvratitʹ eto. I vidya , kak blestyashche oni zashchishchali yug, kak delayut Vy ozhidaete , chto oni napadut na sever.
