Where this river emerges from deep gorges and flows in a wide curve into the plain, the ruins of a vast city had been discovered, apparently watched over by a giant stone tortoise, symbol of eternity.
It was situated on the right bank of the river, 400 kilometres south-west of Ulaanbaatar, the present capital of Mongolia, in an area which was suitable for both crops and livestock and which possessed very old-established mining deposits, the Dalakyn-tal--an area which, indeed, had been the cradle of many Central Asian civilizations.
The strange inscriptions found on the statues and stone stelae discovered in the city were later attributed to the "Blue Turks"; many writings from the period between the sixth and the eighth centuries described this people's glory and its tragic destiny.
