What travelers say:

Leave the ancient observatory and arrive at Shaki Waterfall after 15 minutes by car. There is no explanation here. Except for the waterfall, this ancient observatory was first discovered by Armenian archaeologist Onic in 1984. But this place was mentioned in his book by the 14th-century Armenian historian Stepanos. The date of construction here is uncertain, but it is believed to be a product of the mid-Bronze Age, which has a history of more than 3,400 years. The numerous stones are mostly basalt, which are 0.5-3 meters above the ground and weigh up to 10 tons. These stones are not produced in this area, and how the ancestors arrived here is still a mystery. Some of the multi-colored stones have symbols and words, and some have perfect round holes to observe the interstellar space. This is the place that shocked me the most so far. No information was found on the domestic website. The occasional translation of the name into Stonehenge is really inaccurate.
