    It takes about 90 minutes to drive to the first stop – Chilpik Kala. Second name of the Fortress is Tower of Silence. It was used by people of the Zoroastrian faith for exposure of the dead. The bodies were laid out under the open sky for the birds to eat. When the bones were cleared, families collected them and placed them in clay or stone ossuaries for burial. The building was originally constructed in the first centuries CE but saw a phase of rebuilding in the 7th - 8th centuries. It is a circular high-walled enclosure on an isolated peak overlooking the Amudarya River…

The collection was assembled by an eccentric Ukrainian artist who had been invited to come and work in Nukus…
