Tepe Kermen City

The southern part of town, away from the city gates, now overgrown with forest, and was wasteland. Probably, it is not built up, in order to attack enemies with it could find shelter from neighboring villages. In peaceful times, it housed a lightweight construction craftsmen. Short of a hundred meters up the defensive Wall Kiz-Kermit, a large area, you can see the ruins of some buildings, fences and terraces, which were covered with grass and shrubs. Presumably, the fort were killed in the ix century.

If you look to the east with Kiz-Kermit, you can see a high mountain called Tepe-Kerman. Kiz and Tepe divided deep ravine. Tepe-Kerman has a flat top, which is bounded on the west, south and east of the cliffs a considerable height. At Tepe can see the remains of a small Medieval fortifications. Presumably the city have existed at one and the same time, but Tepe Kermen lasted longer. Its small area (approx. 1 ha) could not live a significant number of residents. The city, however, was well fortified, as evidenced by the traces of the "bed" fighting the walls and a few marches of the road that leads into the corridor, specially cut in the rock.

Places were also preserved cave "dungeons", are visible on the top edge of the rocky cliffs, similar to the early medieval fortress Internal ridge – Eski-Kerman Mangup. Approximately half the area of the city occupied by the ruins of a very large buildings. You can also find here a large cave church with Font, located east of the entrance to the city.
