High up in the Caucasian Mountains, in a valley between the Rubas and Chirakhchai rivers of Daghestan, live the Tabasarans.

Ancient inscriptions on stones, the oldest to be found in all of Daghestan, tell us of the people’s valiant struggle against countless foreign invaders. The Tabasarans have preserve if their ancient heritage and have carried their language, customs, legends, folk tales and songs down to the present day.
