TOUR SIGHTS

 

Do you know that the most ancient petroglyphs are located in Kazakhstan?
We invite you to a fascinating tour in the footsteps of ancient civilizations.
The petroglyphs of the archaeological landscape of Tamgaly is one of the most ancient and vivid monuments of the rock art of Seven-Lakes valley. Since 2004 it has become a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Here in the late 1950s, a sanctuary was discovered with multiple rock paintings of an unknown civilization.
The mysterious civilization disappeared, not having survived till our days, but left more than 4,000 drawings in which displayed their life and worldview. The pictures depict both individual animals and people, as well as whole scenes from life - ritual ceremonies, hunting scenes. In Tamgaly there are drawings of animals that already disappeared in these parts. Also curious are the images of mythical heroes and gods in the form of sun-headed creatures.
Most of the petroglyphs belong to the Bronze Age. But there are also rock carvings from the Middle Ages.
In addition to petroglyphs, a ceremonial altar for sacrifices and a large number of ancient graves of people were found in Tanbaly: stone boxes-cysts of the middle and late bronze age, mounds of earth and stones from the early Iron Age to the present.
