A unique array of stone figures can be found in the foothills of the Zeravshan range. The small hills are literally poked with conglomerate pillars of the most unusual shapes.
The geological structure of the rocks and intensive climatic influence led to the rapid erosion of the stones, which acquired the most unusual forms.
This is the famous "Stone Mushroom", "Heart", "Sphinx", "Skulls" and many other stones, reminiscent of some alien life forms.
Everyone sees in them something of his own, created by imagination. Some people see in a stone a tortoise shell, others some plant, the rest see something not earthly.
In early spring, when the hills become green, the light color of boulders contrasts even more sharply with the environment and creates an unforgettable visual experience, for anyone who is in this kingdom of stone idols.
And, depending on the time of day and lighting, the shapes change giving the observers the ground for fantasy. One can find particular magnificence and mystery in the figures when there is a fog.
