The Por-Bajin fortress (in Tuvinian – “the clay house”) was built in the middle of the VIIIth century by the order of the chief of Uigurian chagan Eletmish Bilige-chagan on the island of Tere-Khol. In In 750 A.. he came with his troops on the territory of the today’s Tuva to conquer it. In order to consolidate his position on the captured territory he built a fortress. Its walls were about ten meters high. The central palace which was situated on a high platform belonged to Eletmish Bilige-chagan himself. Ancient builders had to bring thousands tons of clay and burnt brick.
