The 6 structures that have been unearthed resemble the antiquated designs of Stonehenge, yet predate it by 7000 years.Engsis have somewhat different sizes, bear an essentially uniform design, vary in secondary and minor motifs, and reflect the properties (weave, yarn, color) alleged (the underpinning links are quite shaky) to characterize the anything but monolithic principal Turkmen confederations.
