Adijuh tower

The legend of the tower "Adiyakh"

An ancient legend says: Once upon a time, in this narrowest place in the valley, a canvas bridge was built, connecting its opposite edges. The river in this place was so violent and violent that it was impossible to wade it. It is difficult to believe in the existence of a two-kilometer canvas bridge, but old-timers insist that this is true. In the village of Ali Berdukovsky on the left bank cliff there are still remnants of the coast support - half-decayed oak logs with pieces of winding from a thick canvas. With this tower and a canvas bridge, the legend of the beautiful Princess Adiyakh is connected. According to legend, in the tower-fortress, the prince lived with his clever wife, Adijah. The prince was arrogant and capricious, engaged in night raids, crossed to the other shore and returned, bringing the herds of horses. Helping him in this, Adiyah approached the window and her light-emitting hands illuminated the valley. But one day the prince offended Adiyah, and that at the next return of the prince from a raid did not illuminate his path through the bridge. Overtaking the horses in the dark, the prince broke into the river and drowned. Adiji came to his senses, but it was too late. Executing and killing herself by killing her husband, Adiyah rushed into the river. She was shaking her head against the stones, and blood spilled over the stones, and since then they have become red. Adiyah found the corpse of her husband on the bank of the river near the present aul of Kosh-Khabl and buried in a clean field, pouring a large mound over his grave. Indeed, on the southern outskirts of the aul of Kosh-Hable there are several mounds of various sizes, but none of them is the grave of the prince. Adijah went to her husband's grave every year and lamented him. "I wonder how many years have passed since I buried him, and not a single blade of grass grows on the grave-mound," the princess once thought. "That does not mean he was an evil man," the elders of the clan explained to her, and Adiyih stopped she soon married a brave and handsome Narta Sosruko, but they were not destined to enjoy happiness.When they went to the house of Sosruko, Adiyah fell from her horse and crashed to death: Sosruko was shocked by the incident.He composed a song-crying, in which he poured out his grief.

Oh, my Adiyih, where will I bury you? I'll bury you on the ground - your beasts bite your bones. I'll bury you on the branches of a tall tree - black crows turn off your brown eyes. Where will I bury you, my dear Adiyah?

It is not known where he buried it. However, in 1971 Ali-Berdukov schoolchildren, wandering around the mountains, discovered a horizontal through hole, closed from the front, in a cliff face. When the children looked inside, they saw the ashes of a lying woman. The children told the grown-up guys about it, they entered the cave. When touched by the remains of a woman, decayed bones and clothes fell apart. They say that, apparently, the woman was tall and young, richly dressed. Apparently there is a part of the truth in this legend. Sosruko still found a way to bury his beloved so that neither wolves, nor crows, nor ants, nor damp earth would touch her.
