Exploratory tour to Sphere stone balls - Torysh.

According to one of the legends, the Valley of Balls is a war that came to Mangystau to conquer this territory and defeat the local population. According to legend, the wars failed to do this, the local residents had friends, local gods who guarded these places. When the enemy came, the gods bestowed strength on the local inhabitants of the nomads, and the nomads, together with the gods, turned the enemies into round stones with which the Tuzbair plateau was strewn. So the enemy was defeated, and the locals continued to live in peace and tranquility.

The Valley of the Balls - legends and scientific rationale.

There is no consensus on where these balls came from. Some researchers talk about the natural origin of the balls, mystics and esoterics blame UFOs and unknown underground forces for the formation of balls. Local residents also have their own beliefs and legends.

Legend # 1 says that this place Torysh was the place where giants played, who rolled these balls, for example, how people play bowling now, the so-called ancient bowling alley was located in this region.

Legend # 2 says that the giants had children who imagined these balls as some kind of game pieces, and thus rolling them they played a game that resembles modern curling where you knock out one with a stone.

Legend No. 3 says that these stone balls are ancient fossilized dinosaur eggs, the theory has not been confirmed, since among the balls there are balls half broken and inside you can not see anything like a fossilized fruit of any dinosaurs.

The official version of the formation of the Valley of the Balls is Torysh.

If we take into account the official version of the origin of the balls, scientists say that when our planet was formed, discharges of the most powerful lightning struck it, after the strikes of which rounded earth screeds were formed in the earth's crust, which then came to the surface. The exact time is not specified and specific evidence is not provided, which speaks about the theory, and not about the scientific fact of this phenomenon.
