Historical monuments of Western Kazakhstan will be part of the Republican Map of sacred places
Over 20 historical monuments of East Kazakhstan will be part of the Republican Map of sacred places. Local authorities and regional higher educational institutions have begun to form it. The list of the most iconic objects of spiritual heritage will include the Shilikti burial mounds, the Sak tribes’ tumulus, or the Stone Age temple complex, the Ak Baur tract. All these places are certificated in order to prepare for the scientific evidence.
ALBINA ZHANBOSSINOVA, HISTORIAN:
-We often visit Italy and France to see their sacred places. But we forget that we also have a lot of places here in Kazakhstan which established in our historical tradition. Our president is right when he tells that the national code and national identity shouldn’t be lost since it has to be found through holy places.
