An archaeological monument in Beruniy District of Karakalpakstan was opened by Karakalpak-Australian archeological expedition.

According to Uzbekistan Today, a few days ago in the fort one mysterious figure was cleared of clay - the image of a man wearing a crown in the form of rays and arrows on his head. On the shoulders, apparently, a cloak of cloth, clothes covered with ornaments in the form of images of birds with a human head on a belt hanging sword decorated with ornaments.

Also, archeologists discovered another 12 meters of surface-preserved walls with paintings. They are also portraits of people in the corona. On one of the hats three large flowers are shown, or rather can be said after the final clearance, and three portraits of people with crowns of European type. Also for the first time during the work on the monument a large number of inscriptions on ancient Khorezm Aramaic script language discovered.

Temple settlement Cazaclia-yatkan (Akshahan-kala) referred to III-II centuries BC. Part of portraits found, according to scientists, depicts Khorezm kings of previously unknown dynasty. There is speculation that the town was one of the first capitals of the ancient Khorezm state, and church is the sanctuary of the dynasty of kings of ancient Khorezm.
