Archaeologists discovered two early Saka tribes’ burials in the Shiliktinsk Valley in Zaisan district of East Kazakhstan region. The artifacts date back to the 7th century BC. The mound of 88 meters in diameter has 350 gold beads, one golden mold in the form of a griffin, diamond-shaped ornaments made of gold leaf. According to scientists, this paraphernalia is the object of the highest art and belongs to the representatives of the noble family of Saks. It is planned to keep the Ancient Mound for posterity. It will be covered with a metal dome to protect it from bad weather and destruction. The road to the mound will be paved to attract more tourists to places of worship.

I think this area was some sort of a Heros for Saka tribes, Heros is a place where the greatest and the most honorable people were buried. I am sure that the King of Saka tribes was buried in this mound.
