The sanctuary was opened in 2003, the ancient inhabitants deified the area by bringing gifts to the gods and turning it into a kind of temple. Over time they began to carry huge stones from the area and built homes for the temple’s servants (priests).
The sanctuary performed functions similar to the monasteries today.
The altar has been preserved on which no traces of sacrificial animals have been found, only plant ones.
