    The Sumug Tower is a 10m high fortress and watchtower in Ilisu village dating from the 17th century. It was built using river and limestone and is said to be so solid that the local people call it “Sümük Qala” or “Bone Tower”. The tower was built during the reign of the last khan of Ilisu, Daniyal-Bek, a companion of Sheik Shamil, who led resistance against the invading Russians in the 19th century.

    The tower is an example of similar defensive fortresses, which played an important role in keeping the Russians at bay during the Caucasian Wars. However the building’s windows suggest that it was also later used as a dwelling. Restoration work started in 2006 and the tower now houses the Ilisu Khanate History museum.
