Ruins of a church near Lipi lake

There're ruins of an old church near Lipi lake.
There might have been more buildings included in the complex, it's hard to say now.
The name and history of this construction are not known yet, but judging from rich ornamental pattern on stones,
the constructions can't be considered ordinary ones.

Proceeding the trip, we're coming up to the lake and then going up through the forest to the ruiins of the church.
When approaching, we can see ruins of a wall that might have served as a fence.

The interiour room of a small church is the most extant.

There's an interesting stone slab not far from the entrance.

The slab is rectangular, more than 1.5 m. height.
The image on it reminds a modern scheme or map with symbols most of all.
It is incomprehensible what it really is.
