Remains of an old Russian fortress of the nineteenth century

Literally a few steps from the international highway in the village of Kungirot are the remains of a Russian fortress. At one time, it was supposed to serve as a transshipment base on the way of Russian divisions to India. But the policy of the Russian Tsar Alexander III changed. The remains of the Russian fortress are interesting, in addition to their picturesqueness and examples of local stone processing, from which it was built.
