First, they all lived together, but then they separated. The elder son Egi said: “Here is good climate, so I will stay here” – and he settle in Egikal. The middle son said: “I will climb on that slope, there is always shiny and a large meadow, where guest can ride his horse”. And he laid the tower complex Khamkhi. The little son was good horseman, he said: “I will settle down on the other side of the river”. He passed the river and on the right bank of the Assa river he laid the village Targim.
