The dam of Abdulkhan bandi located in Biglarsay that flowed down from the south mountainside of the Nurata range. It assembled from worked out of flagstone on the water-resistance mortar. The dam is the whole complex of hydro engineering installation, where included the dam, floodgate on the beams, ground gallery with vertical mine and catastrophic spillway. The first sizes of dam: at the bottom - 73 m, top - 85 m, foundation width - 15,3 m, on top - 4,6 m, height - 15 m. Forcing edge of the dam almost vertical, the eastern part is in series.
