Mausoleums of Karakhan and Dautbek

A popular tourist destination, included in the list of the cultural heritage of Kazakhstan.

The Mausoleums of Karakhan and Dautbek are among the oldest religious buildings of this kind on the territory of Kazakhstan. According to legends, Dautbek, the commander-in-chief of the Karakhanid army, was the son-in-law of Shah-Mahmud Buhr Karakhan , therefore their tombs are not far from each other.

Karakhan Mausoleum consists of central hall, small cells and a staircase that leads to the roof. In Dautbek Mausoleum there is also a gravestone in the form of a stepped pyramid, where the date of the Kazakh commander's death is indicated. Both monuments are under state protection, included in the list of the cultural heritage of the Republic of Kazakhstan.
