Manor of Aiganym, Shoqan Walikhanov's grandmother

The estate of the prominent Walikhanov family

Shoqan Walikhanov was a great scholar, ethnographer, and historian. His grandmother, Aiganym, played an important role in the upbringing of the future scientist. The Walikhanovs' estate, which is now a museum, is a historical and ethnographic site located in the village of Syrymbet. 

Unfortunately, the original estate has not been preserved. However, it was restored according to Russian architectural tradition of the 19th century. On the estate's territory there are a mosque, a madrasa (an Islamic school), a guest house, and a barn. This place doesn't feel like a museum, but like a real manor of the 19th century.

The museum regularly hosts various exhibitions, and lectures. Feel free to visit it and witness the life of the Kazakh noblemen of the 19th century.
