Chiraggala fortress is located about 20-25 km from the Davaci city in north-eastern Azerbaijan on top of a mountain near the Gala-alty resort. According to researchers, this patrol-inspection facility, dating back to the IV-VI centuries, served as main element of Gilgilchay defensive wall at those times.
