Užava Idol’s Linden and Idol’s brooklet

On the riverside of the river Užava between Tuņņi (former Jānnieki) and Robežnieki houses stands old grey linden. Under its branches our ancestors gave sacrifices to their idols. Even at the beginning of the century and after WW2 donations were left there: money, spikes in the hole of the hollow of the tree. Legend tells that people who brake branches of the tree die of injure themselves.

Near the linden is Idol’s brooklet which disgorges into the river Užava.

Ancient natural sacred sites. Kurzeme.
