Prehistoric rock drawings have been found in more than fifty places in Tajikistan, many of which are in the Pamir mountain area. Some date from as far back as 1,000 B.C. These drawings, either chipped out of the surfaces of granite rocks by means of a stone or scratched with a knife, depict hunting scenes, with mountain goats, yaks, deer, and the running hunters with bows and dogs. The Dara area is also famous for its collection of petroglyphs. The four groups of rock drawings that have been discovered there show humans and ornaments.
