Many traders were coming to that place to sell their good and spend a night. There is a Tower that is 24 meters high now. At that time it was 45 meters high but because of the earthquake in 15 century the top of the tower was destroyed. This tower was used as a sign for travelers and traders, as a watching tower and as a place to call local people to pray. After the earthquake in the 15 century people were scared to stay in the city. People thought that god cursed them, that is why they left this settlement in a hurry and did not have the majority of their belongings. The houses in the city were made of clay and they melt because of time. Now you can see only the tower and a hill nearby that is supposed to be khan's palace. The archeologist found many artifacts there and you can see some of them in a local museum. The other part of artifacts was taken to Russian in Soviet times.  You will proceed to see there a cemetery of Balbals. Balabal is a Stone Warrior. In the 7th century A.
