By custom, it has always been so. In the boat she was carrying a rich dowry: clothes, cauldrons, plaits, sturgeon and much more. To meet her came the numerous brothers of the groom, other people. The groom himself met the hyamat too on the boat. Suddenly, a whirlwind struck, and the bride lost her wedding cap. Everyone saw that she was bald. The hyamata became petrified with shame. Both the groom and his brothers petrified. Petrified boat with dowry, rowers and bridesmaids. The bride and the boat became the island of Yadasen, the groom - the island of Gyuldegen. The groom's brothers are capes that descend to Lake Bologna from the north-west. And today you can find a cauldron, and a sturgeon fish cut into pieces, and a wild boar, and various other petrified things. "
The village of Achan. Its history is the village of Achan from the time when the ancient Nanai clan of Khodzher founded its tribal camp on the shores of Lake Bologna. In 1651, Russian sailors and explorers, led by Yerofey Khabarov, built a small fortress near the camp and was named "Achani town" - this place became part of the history of Russian art.

They are images of masks, animals, birds, snakes, boats, holes - holes and concentric circles. A total of about 300 drawings have been found, at present there are no more than 160. The drawings are made with a stone tool by the method of deep grooved embossing and with an iron tool in the style of carved technique. Images refer to the era of the Mesolithic, Neolithic, Early Iron Age and early Middle Ages and date back to the XIIth millennium BC. - the first half of the 1st millennium AD. The first scientific descriptions and studies of petroglyphs of the Lower Amur belong to RK Maak, who examined the valley of the river. Ussuri in 1859 and N. Alftan (1894). It is assumed that people began to create them on the banks of the Amur more than 3000 years ago. That is, the Amur petroglyphs are peers of the Egyptian pyramids. A picture of a horse was found on one of the boulders. Archaeologists say that horses were driven around the Amur only in the ice age. This is the oldest petroglyph. Several thousand petroglyphs are scattered along the banks of the Amur River. Until now, not all petroglyphs are known. Many are carried to the bottom by the flood waters of the Amur, and so they did not have time to sketch, but only saw. Some turned face down from the pressure of the ice floes during the ice drift, and no one now knows which inverted boulder hides the stone face.
