A group of Kazakh archaeologists have launched an expedition to explore the monuments in Turgai steppes of Kostanay region.
According to ECO Cultural Institute quoting 24.kz, in the framework of the project "In the footsteps of the ancestors", the archeologists first found mausoleum of two brothers Aygozhi and Baigozhi, both of them prominent figures from Kypshak tribe. They ruled over a large family. And after their death, they were buried in Zhanakala, by Karatorgai river. Historians say that they lived in the 18th century.
There are about a dozen and a half unique historical monuments in the Turgai steppes. Most of them are under state protection. For example, the mausoleum of Abdygappar Khan, who is said to have had 50,000 soldiers in his army and was chosen by the peoples of the region as their Khan.
Presently, expeditions are going on in the region and the scientists believe that they will find other objects and monuments here.
