So far, paintings depicting animals, and people hunting have been discovered. One petroglyph shows a man wearing a hat holding a dead wolf and another one has a man on a camel with the rein in his hand. Cultural relics workers said petroglyphs on such subjects were rare in the region.



According to the regional culture and tourism department, further investigation is needed to find out the date of these petroglyphs.
