As a sacral space, mountains in Dagestan are traditionally considered to be the abode of gods and demons. Rainmaking rituals and folk medical procedures are performed on the mountain sites. On the tops of mountains, their slopes and passes there are many buildings transformed later into Muslim places of worship. The paper describes some cases of orolatry among the peoples of Dagestan, based on the relevant sources and personal field materials.
