The site has been systematically destroyed over the centuries. The lack of real protection has caused a dual permanent plunder of the site. On the one hand, robbers who sought gold and other valuables had been constantly digging up the site. On the other hand, villagers had been systematically disassembling the architectural remains and taking away tombstones because the ruins were considered a source of free construction material. Therefore, there are no preserved structures on the surface today, and every form of their research and presentation must be done by excavation.
