The region is the preferred burial ground for the Thracian nobility for centuries, resulting in the creation of about 1,300 tumuli, of them, about 300 have been archaeologically researched. The tumuli are not just tombs, they are also temples since the Thracians believed that their kings are demigods or heroes.
