Geocache Description:


No nostastiem izriet, ka senak šeit atradies Kinta maju komplekss - "Kintes," kas bijis neparasts ar to, ka viss bijis celts no palieliem un lieliem akmeniem. Šo maju kompleksu izbuvejis kads Kintu Ernests - vietejais spekavirs, gudrinieks vai pat burvis. Pec vietejo iedzivotaju iztaujam vinš dzivojis ap 1700.gadu. No visa Kintu maju kompleksa musdienas atlikusi vairs tikai lieliem akmeniem izodereta aka, ka saka, maksligi raktas gravas gala. Grodu augšejie akmeni parsteidz ar saviem izmeriem - to tilpums vertejams ka 0,4-0,7 m3, tatad ap tonnu svara. Augšejie akmeni visai labi apstradati taisnstura forma. teika saka, ka aka bijis dikti garšigs udens - nu gluži ka vins. Ta ari bijusi loti dzila, lai gan tagad tas dzilums izmerits ka 3 m. nav skaidrs kadiem merkiem aka atrodas izrakta novada. Ar rikstes palidzibu esot noteikts, ka te bijis liels taisnstura laukums, kas veidots no lieliem akmeniem. Ta vidu ir 67 apbedijumi, no kuriem tikai viens ir sievietes, bet parejie - viriešu. Akas otra puse bijuši tris viens otra esoši stavakmenu apli. Vel akas priekšpuse bijis trijstura formas akmens kravums ar apli iekšpuse un vel daži citi akmens apli.

[ENG]One of the most mysterious and unusual ones is Kintu Aka - Kinti Well. Well made of stones.
Kintu Aka represents a sunken well made of large, rectangular stone slabs. Stone slabs are processed with great precision and they form an exact square where each side is 1.25 m long. Volume of each of these stones is 0.4 - 0.7 m3. The largest stones are located above and are visible - their size is 1.93 x 0.74 x 0.47 m and 1.55 x 1 x 0.27 m and each weighs approximately one ton. Deeper the stones become smaller but at the base, at several metres depth they are enormous again.
Well is filled with stagnant water - it certainly does not serve its purpose now.
