Notes :
The place is named after a well (shand), where monks got water. Today it is a well for animals. There are stone and brink remnants of foundations, supposedly the buildings were made of wood. Nobody could give any information about the monkhood of the temple. According to the measurements of the complex 20-100 could have belonged to the monastery. There are some copper fragments of pots and a place where monks threw litter, on the southwest.
