Palace complex "Akyrtas"

The study of the palace complex "Akyrtas " continues in our days, causing great interest among world scientists.

Significant palace complex "Akyrtas" is located near the city of Taraz, Zhambyl region. It is a monument of medieval culture and is included in the UNESCO World Heritage List. The history of the magnificent structure is intertwined with many secrets, so scientists still put forward theories about its appearance. The current Akyrtas is the ruins of huge stone blocks, the construction of which in the distant past was practically impossible, which already puts many scientists and ethnographers into the stupor. Palace building consists of four parts and the complex includes mountain cuts, designed for mining, park and housing construction. The walls of “Akyrtas” are very dense and durable, and the height of the foundation of buildings is as much as 4 meters. Residents of the complex were supplied with water, because there was a plumbing system from nearby springs.
