Historical and Cultural Jeyrakh-Assa Reservation

.

Jeyrakh-Assa Reservation is part of the Tentative list of Russia in order to qualify for inclusion in the World Heritage List.

The Jeyrakh-Assa Reservation comprises 18 historic settlements of the Vainakh people in Ingushetia. The area is known for its stone architecture: funerary crypts, Pagan and Christian shrines and temples, and Vainakh towers. These towers were used as dwellings, others had a military purpose; some combined both functions.
