Map of sacral places of Kazakhstan
Representatives of ethnocultural associations of the Aktobe region conducted an expedition to the holy sites of the region. 35 participants visited the mausoleum and the Yeset Batyr monument in the Alginsky district. The holy place joined the Map of Sacral places of Kazakhstan. The tomb of a famous commander was built 25 years ago, but the monument was constructed recently. As part of the Tugan Zher program, a local businessman helped to construct the monument. The list of Kazakhstan’s holy places include 100 facilities. Located in the Aktobe region the memorial complexes, particularly, "Kobylandy batyr", "Abat-Baitak" and the Khan molasy necropolis have joined the country's cultural and geographical belt.
