Archaeological finds of burial in the Caucasus ascertain strange – a stylized image of the fish. What is the relationship of mountaineers to the sea? At the beginning of the new (2002-2005) thousands of years in the Upper Malki, in the vicinity of Kislovodsk and mining of Karachay-Cherkessia archaeologists have discovered several pagan shrines. Their description, chronological and cultural atributatsiya – until that matter of the future, today is only possible to state quite strange circumstance that brings together many of these findings in a row – in terms they are stylized fish. Who, what people, living in isolated valleys, in the medium, not even assuming ritualistiki slightest water, treated with such reverence to the fish? In an attempt to somehow explain the incomprehensible love of the ancient Caucasians to fish – in the lives of all the mountaineers of the Earth fish usually does not play a special role, so the the object of worship does not happen in the esoteric not functional – we turned to the history of Turkic peoples in the region and found another one, no less surprising fact. The Turks are known in the Caucasus long ago. Curiously, Balkar, and Kumyks, and ancient Bulgars, and not so long ago disappeared Karabulak in his past were either 'land' pagans, or 'heaven' tengriantsami, in the names of these people clearly read the word 'fish'. In the Bulgars, Balkar and Karabulak – 'Balyk', y Kumyk – 'kumug' (a type of salmon). The Turks in general – with the exception of the Seljuks and Ottomans – have not been spoiled by the abundance of water and its inhabitants throughout their official history.
