These are the remains of a high prehistoric settlement, fortified by an earthen rampart from the Late Bronze Age, ie the period between 1200 and 800 BC. Kr.

I had never seen thermal hot springs before. I came to this place to see for myself. It was amazing to see the hot springs. The water was really hot. I went from one spring to another until I got tired. I went back to my hotel and had a cool bath then later ate at an open restaurant while enjoying the view and the cool evening breeze.
Any lover of pre historic churches must definitely come to this place, there are a few churches around here that are built with great design and colour. There are also remains of settlement that are very intriguing to see.
On arrival, I learnt that this place was used as the reception of persons and that it was the most famous baths in the 18th Century.We were lucky to witness the discovery of the remains of ceramic vessels such as stone artifact hoe here. A very educative wonderful tour.
We toured the thermal springs located at the foot of the hill Zashat and were delighted to see the magic of mother nature. I marveled at the creativity depicted in the beautiful architectural design of the church.The house remains made of reeds, timber and mud are some of the sights to behold.
