In this paper the fortification features and the spatial orientation of buildings Dashly-3 and Koi-Krylgan-kala was investigated. It was found that the configuration of the towers of Koi-Krylgan-kala allow to identify five significant astronomical directions: azimuth of the true North, azimuths of sunrise and sunset at the winter solstice and the azimuths of the heliacal rising and setting of the Pleiades. These azimuths can be “encrypted” by using of nine towers, evenly placed around the circumference. We assume that this scheme is not accidental, but it was deliberately implemented by architects of the monument Koi-Krylgan-kala.
