Tatar Mound in Przemyśl

The Tatar Mound in Przemyśl (Polish: Kopiec Tatarski w Przemyślu), is a mound located on Zniesienie (350.3 m above sea level) in the city of Przemyśl.

Originally this was a place of worship of Slavic gods (especially Swarożyca).

The dimensions of the mound on which the temple was located were: 39.83 m in length, 13.3 m in width and 10.43 m in height from its base. In later times a chapel dedicated to Saint Leonard was built in the place of the former temple as compensation for alleged victims made of Christians. This chapel was destroyed during World War II. The Tatar Mound, also known as Przemysław's Mound (the legendary founder of Przemyśl), dates back to the end of the 9th century, and its creation is associated with the presence of the Magyars in these areas.
