TOUR SIGHTS

 

We are glad to invite you to a day tour of the most significant historical places of Southern Kazakhstan, where you can get closer to the history of the people of Central Asia, touch the monuments of medieval architecture and get an unforgettable experience from what you see for long memory.

Firstly you will head towards the ruins of Otrar fortified city, which was one of the largest cities in Central Asia on the route of the Great Silk Road. The city dates from the period from the beginning of our era to the XIX century. In 1219, the сity bravely fought with the army of Genghis Khan and was under siege for almost half a year, as a result, it was captured, plundered and almost the entire population destroyed. The great conqueror Amir Timur lived before a grand campaign to China and died in Otrar of a fever in 1405.

Before visiting the Mausoleum of Khoja Ahmed Yassawi it's considered mandatory to visit the mausoleum of Arystan Baba - a teacher and spiritual mentor of Khoja Ahmed Yassawi. 
Next, you will arrive in the ancient city of Turkestan, formerly known as Yassy - which was a fortified city in the Middle Ages. You will see with your own eyes the most beautiful architectural monument of Kazakhstan - the Mausoleum of Khoja Ahmed Yassawi, included in the UNESCO World Heritage List. This is a true masterpiece of medieval architecture with several domes and a grand entrance portal. Persian architects were involved in the construction of the mausoleum, innovative solutions were used, as in the construction of Samarkand (the capital of Timurids - in the time of Tamerlan).
