Akyrtas Palace

The study of the Akyrtas Palace is still ongoing, arousing interest among historians.

Akyrtas Palace is located near the city of Taraz, in the Jambyl Province. It is a monument of medieval culture and is included in the UNESCO World Heritage List. The history of the magnificent structure is shrouded in mystery. Now Akyrtas is the ruins of huge stone buildings. The construction of such buildings in the past was almost impossible. Scientists still put forward theories about its origin. The palace itself consists of four parts. The complex also includes a park, mines, and residential buildings. The walls of Akyrtas are very durable, and the buildings' foundations are 4 meters (13 ft) high. Residents of the complex were supplied with water, because there was a plumbing system, using water from nearby springs.
