The tourist complex on the Ordabasy Mountain in the South Kazakhstan Region will become a spiritual center of revival. The complex will be built as part of the Modernization of Public Consciousness program. Authors of the project have chosen this place on purpose. The monument with an area of 1000 hectar is set on the mountain. This monument symbolizes unity of the Kazakh people. Many centuries ago, three Kazakh bis used to unite at this very place to join forces against Dzungars. During the independence leaders of three countries, Kazakhstan, Uzbekistan and Kyrgyzstan met here to hold the kurultai. Then national historical-cultural reserve was founded here.
BAKHYTZHAN ASHIRBEKOV, HEAD, PROJECT OFFICE OF MODERNIZATION OF PUBLIC CONSCIOUSNESS PROGRAM:
- This has a special meaning to history of Kazakhs. In the future, the Ordabasy should become a place of spiritual revival and modernization of public consciousness. For this purpose, we have to modernize and promote.
The authors note that the tourist complex will complement the local landscape. Architectures took into account cafes and hotels, an observation deck and a new museum. The amphitheater with open sky to view localities will be built there, too.
BAKHYTZHAN ASHIRBAYEV, DIRECTOR, ‘ARCHITECTURE BUREAU’ MUNICIPAL STATE INSTITUTION:
- There won’t be big constructions except the museum. I think we should make sure that the museum won’t damage the view of landscape. Today construction of facilities with minimum surfeits is quite popular which can be done thanks to technologies.
RASHID KAIYPZHANOV, GOVERNOR, ORDABASY REGION, SOUTH KAZAKHSTAN REGION:
- We are building an infrastructure to make sure that tourists will feel comfortable. This will be a complex where people can discover history, find their connection with the past as well as rest.
Construction of the tourist complex will finish in 2018.
