Speaking of "Scripture Rocks" on Tom, we usually remember pisanitsa Tomsk. But she — only the first eight are located in the area. For forty seven kilometers down the river there is the Tom petroglyph rock massifs: Novoromanovskaya I and II, Cool I and II, Hanging Stone, Nicholas, and closes the ensemble Tutalskaya Pisanyza. Doctor of Historical Sciences Igor Kovtun says: "This last rock massif, on the banks of the river Tom is also the last northwestern petroglyphs located in the Central and North-Western Asia. Furthermore, to the Urals, nothing like no … "
What is so attracted to this place of our ancestors?
On a section of its course as if Tom makes a circle, changing course and contrary to the usual in Siberia — from south to north — begins to run from north to south. In the myths of many Siberian peoples associated with the south location of the Upper World, dwelling of light forces, rebirth after death. It is in this place and is Novoromanovskaya Pisanyza.
On this part of the rotation trajectory closely follows Tom semicircle daily movement of the sun across the sky, corresponding to the movement of modern-clockwise from left to right. There is a theory that at the end of the second millennium BC, is a unique place was a sort of Tibet for our ancestors. Therefore sought here the ancient shaman artists. Can you believe this, but you can treat with skepticism, but the fact that the drawings have appeared in this place is no accident — a fact that is difficult to dispute.
It seems that the archaeologists found the complexes is not the last. Not long ago, just above the rock formations and petroglyphs on the rocks themselves was found parking for elk hunters with traces of sacrificial ritual meal, and on the opposite coast, at the mouth of the river of debt, — the remains of more than one location of ancient people. And here, over Tomyu, less than a kilometer is still intact burial mound. In 2009-2011, the staff archaeologists Institute of Human Ecology, Academy of Sciences under the direction of Alexei Marochkina unearthed here in the cultural layer "parking hunters" rocky ledge with a found image — a boat. Found on Novoromanovskaya inscriptions and symbolic burial in a stone box — cenotaph …
Another surprising fact. All complexes Pritomsky inscriptions are strictly on the 85th meridian. By odnoyiz versions probably is in these places Tutalskogo complex was a large sacral center. Center of spiritual culture of ancient peoples.
And in a city that lost children …
But not only the ancient rock paintings attract Tutalskie rock. According to the Tomsk writer and ethnographer NS Novogorodova under an array of these rocks is … ancient underground city!
Everyone who is interested in archeology, a vast complex known mysterious ancient caves of South America, the Himalayas, Tibet … Something like this, according to Novgorod, and we have in the Kuzbass.
In 2000-2001, the author of the hypothesis was even organized a special expedition to the area Tutalskih rocks, which were the basis for the childhood memories of the famous local historian AS Tomsk Loktyushina. He described how in the 1960s, went with their peers in the "underground city" opposite Jurga. Entrance was located about half a kilometer from the coast in a steep ravine and gently sinking to the north. Mount in the tunnel were not visible because it was in the rocks. One young researchers found there rusty revolver … In those same years, lost in the tunnels of many children is located near camp, and the authorities decided to blow up all the entrances.
According to the results of the expedition in 2001 found that Tutalskie rocks in terms of mining is a multi-level object. Lowest level is represented by the ancient tunnels, which penetrated Yurginsky and children in the early 1960s. From these catacombs, exploded in 1964, there were numerous craters and covered with thick bushes deepening. Eyewitnesses of the child "expeditions" remember that the catacombs were highly branched.
Residents said Jurga, walk the ancient tunnels in the years 1950-60, the "main underground passage could move next week to reach the surface." Part of the rocks, which indicate Yurginsky local historians and residents have unnatural form of collapse. Part collapses reveals large-niches. One of the rocks has a set of the portal, as in modern tunnels …
In May 2012 the journalist of "Yashkinsky Bulletin" made several expeditions to the area Tutalskih rocks to check the facts stated NS Novogorodovym, as well as information received from other sources.
Conclusion: The signs that a Tutalskimi rocks are ancient underground structures are obvious.
A cave paintings? The images on the rocks "sunlike" There is a direct point to the presence here of the entrance to the other world, which is underground. But the entrance is not always a way out of it. Maybe that's why never found Yurginskiy boys stepped through the hidden boundary ancient dungeons of the other world?
Great against the Vandals: who wins?
However, the list of secrets that keep these places, not limited by the presence of rock paintings and a possible underground city beneath them.
According to the same NS Novogorodova, it is clear that the rock Tutalskie visited legendary Alexander the Great. It was during his famous "Indian" campaign in the fourth century BC. Version of his hypothesis the author convincingly proves in the book "Alexander the Great Siberian expedition."
The totality of these facts, in my opinion, would encourage anyone to agree with the fact that our Pritomsky right bank was the "pot", which were born ethnic groups and peoples. "Cauldron", which were cooked and stirred, enriching each other, different cultures. Apparently, there is some force that made the ancient tribes travel thousands of miles to touch the ancient secret ancestors, absorb the energy of the earth and the cosmos.
A power here and now is very unusual. It's starting to feel barely set foot on the rocky shore Tutalskih foot cliffs.
In short, a unique monument. But sometimes it seems that, unfortunately, except for scholars and enthusiasts, local historians, no one needs. So, eight years ago, unknown vandals "painted" swastikas are the most open and described NY Ovchinnikov in 1906, ancient drawings. Then archaeologists with difficulty Otterlo these traces modern "artists." It would seem that this wild one case should give food for thought, at least, of any protection. But no. Complexes Pritomsky inscriptions still orphan, no one protected.
Meanwhile, it Tutalskaya Pisanyza all parameters fit the status of the Kuzbass miracle and deserves to become a major tourist brand Kuzbass.
Alas! So far, here come and go only "wild tourists", leaving behind a pile of rubbish, piles of empty cans and bottles so burnt campfire clearing. Several years ago, in a nearby pine forest caused by tourists even had a fire …
Another problem that threatens the preservation of the place comes from the nearby housing estate yurgintsev. Greatly increased in recent years, he came very close to the unique rocks. Developing further, it will pose a direct threat to the existence of the monument. And time is relentless sun, wind, cold weather do its thing. What's the solution? Only one: the need to protect their property. It is clear that this requires funding and the attention of the authorities. But the complex of ancient rock petroglyphs is the true miracle, which do not mind to invest.
