   Thracian sanctuary near the village of Dolni Glavnak in Haskovo municipality. It is a type of Cromlech and Thracian religious facility. It is a stone calendar, consisting of a vertical pyramid stone blocks arranged in a circle with a diameter of ten meters. Dates from 8-6 century BC. In the described circle are performed religious rituals. Evidence of these religious rituals are pottery and various metal objects discovered in 1999 It was a sacred place of honor in the Middle Ages. Not far from the Cromlech found two smaller facilities in which evidence was found for children's funerals by trupoizgaryane. Analogue of a Thracian sanctuary / Cromlech / Stonehenge is Britain. The sanctuary was discovered by Dr. D. Nehrizov in 1998 and has been preserved in good condition.

  Although not found direct parallels to the megalithic monument, no doubt to his Thracian origin. He is a great example of the application of locally traditions of megalithic construction for building these iconic structures that are typical of the Thracians first millennium BC.
