The Cemetery in the authentic village of Nokhur with graves, marked by the horns of mountain goats, Turkmenistan

Nokhur (also Nohur) is a settlement located in Turkmenistan. The small and relatively untouched village of Nohur rests in an unmarked valley of the Kopet Dag Mountains, which make up the border of Iran and southern Turkmenistan.The cemetery of Nokhur is the obvious sight in this mountain village. Its graves, marked by the horns of mountain goats, point to burial rites steeped in animism, sprinkled with Zoroastrianism. The goat horns are there to fight off evil spirits, while the stones are marked with steps, to help the deceased ascend to heaven
