Returning to Gobustan
Gobustan is one of the cradles of mankind. Petroglyphs of Gobustan are approximately 20,000 years old. All epochs have left their marks on these stones, from sacral signs of prehistoric tribes to inscriptions of Roman legionaries and people of the Soviet period. Tarlan has grown up among these stones, he has known them since his childhood. Tarlan will guide us around all ritual caves of Gobustan, showing us wonderful rock carvings, ruins of Sun Temple, sacred stones and other things that one can come across only in Gobustan.
