According to a Armenian legend, there was a vampire, Dakhanavar (also called 'Dashnavar'), who resided in the mountains of Ultmish Alto-tem. He was very protective and did not like anyone intruding in around his residence that covered 366 valley surrounded by mountains. If one did, he would attack them in the night and kill them by sucking the blood from the soles of the intruders feet.

However, it is told that two travelers outwitted Dakhanavar by sleeping with their feet tucked up under another’s heads. Confused by this strange creature with two heads and no feet, Dakhanavar left the region never to be heard of again.


The story is documented in 1854 by Baron August von Haxthausen and has been made mention by Montague Summers (1880-1947).
