Tortkol Caravanserai

Once an inn on the Silk Road, now an open-air museum.

Tortkol Caravanserai was an inn on the Silk Road where travelers could rest and recover from the day's journey. It is located within a quadrangular platform measuring 85 by 100 meters. In 1983, the first research works were conducted here. In the period from 2008 to 2011, more than 40 valuable artifacts were discovered, including coins and remains of ceramic dishes. According to archaeologists, a hotel and baths were located on the territory of the caravanserai.

The popularity of the Tortkol Caravanserai among Zhambyl region residents and tourists is due to its high historical significance and unique exposition.
