Sangar fortress

The fortress is located on the right bank of the Tala river, 8 km south-west of the Okon fortress. Several families of Greek miners settled here at the beginning of the 19th century, who were engaged in copper mining. A church was built, which is preserved to this day. It is believed that the Sangar fortress was built by the owners of the mines in very early times. The altitude at which the fortress was built covers an area of more than a hectare. The fortress is protected by slopes from east to north, and there was no need to protect it with additional structures. A 4 m wide wall was built on the north-eastern side. The six-meter opening is the entrance to the fortress.
