Kemal ata

kemal-ata

Kemal-ata is a hill in the vicinity of the provincial town of Old Crimea. It contains the remains of some foundations and several tombstones with the names of sheikhs. Kemal-ata is popularly known among the people as the grave of Mamai. Defeated by Dmitry Donskoy in 1380, Mamai fled to Kaffa (Feodosia) where the Genoese promised him to save, but treacherously killed him. It should be noted, however, that the word "mamai" has become in the Old Crimea and its environs, to some extent, a household name: many other hills and mounds are called simply mamai.

Kemal-Ata Canyon, in the middle of the desert, from nowhere, a source appeared and cut a small canyon in the rocks. Herds of sheep and camels are brought to the source for watering. But the most interesting thing is the unusual stone formations, reminiscent of dinosaur eggs or embryonic eggs from the cult movie "Alien". There are a lot of them, and many of them are half "walled up" in the walls of the canyon.

We recommend spending the night in the center of pilgrims at the burial of Saint Gazli-Ata, next to the burials dating from the 9th-10th centuries. The center is also located in one of the canyons and surrounded by "fiery" mountains and cliffs.
