This old hillock is situated around 12 huge pines with bare trunk. From each pine comes up a branch, making a dome over the hillock. In fact, they are branches, bounded firmly with fetters and iron chains to the solid pines. Without these chains the whole structure would collapse. The chains and the iron ring with the diameter of an altar (the mark of an altar in the sky) oblige the beams to hold each other forming a dome. On the upper side of the hillock there is an another round altar-chimney made of stone, that should be burnt 12 times a year, on the day graved in the threshold stone of each station. (these 12 gates are on the path leading to the monument).These dates are historical anniversaries of the people in the area of Three Chairs. The monument is situated in the middle of the stone path system having the form of a flame in the direction of each locality. At the end of each pathway there is a cliff in which is graved the name of the locality.
