After taking the oath of office, we were taken on a tour to the Gissar fortress. Then it was just a hill, on top of which was a recess like a bowl or a crater, with almost vertical from the inside, earthy walls 4-6 meters high. Rainwater was collected in the center of it. On one side of the creek broke a ravine. Right above it, at the foot of the hill, were built two towers and an arch between them. On the contrary was an old madrassa. Lonely sheep grazed on the slopes of the fortress. From the top of the nearby hills with towers, a wonderful view of the towers and madrassas itself was opened. I still have a few photos of those times. They were made in June-July 1991. I hope you will be interested to see what the fortress looked like back then.
ツアーで行きました。再建している途中です。見応えあります。眺めは最高でした。この要塞の中にプールらしきものもあったという。暑い夏には必要だったのかもしれない。 more »I went on a tour. We are in the process of rebuilding. It's worth seeing. The view was great.
