When the soil was taken by new owners, a law came out in 1921 and all the cultural assets of the local people were seized and their cultural activities ceased. However, in the 1980s, as a result of the long struggles of the local people, all these cultural heritages were taken back and started to be exhibited and preserved in the museum called U'mista Cultural Center. You must visit this museum to see and learn the true ethnology, traditions, cultural structure and history of the city.
