Approximately 5000 rock carvings that date from at least the Late Bronze Age (1500 BCE). have been found here, as well as sanctuaries and burial mounds, which have offered a unique insight into ancient nomad civilizations.
The valley appears to have been a sacred site as over 48 sanctuaries and burial grounds have been found. This is image depicts a person with a sun-shaped head and may depict a shaman or even a sun god.
