Kalalygyr 2, an ancient city of Khorezm in 10 km to west of Kalalygyr 1, near left coast of ancient riverbed of South Daudan. The most monumental construction inside of the fortress is a round temple with 24 m diameter, erected the same way as external fortification on 2 meter artificial platform. Walls of the temple had arrow-shaped loopholes with oval massive entrance tower abut on it from north. This religious center was deserted after total crushing of the fortress, followed by conflagration, whose traces are still visible not only on its walls, but also on the whole archaeological inventory.
