It is a medium-sized mound settlement rising on a natural hill with a conical shape. Though the hill measures 200 m in diameter, it is not possbile to estamte actual size of the mound. It dominates the plain to the South. A creek runs to 250 m east of the mound. The archeological deposit is red like the agricultural soil. The top of the mound has a deep cut running in NE-SW direction done by a heavy duty machine.
