Review

The Tamgaly-Tas tract, located on the bank of the Ili River, 85 km from the city of Almaty, is a historical place, notable for rock drawings, on which an unknown artist carved 5 images of Buddhist deities. Historians date them back to the 12th century. You can climb the rocks along safe paths and enjoy the view of the river valley and the steppe expanses. All images fully comply with the rules of Buddhist painting: clothes, flowers, gestures, bowls in hands. On another rock, tamgas of all kinds are carved, with which the Kazakhs associate the beginning of their statehood.
The Tamgaly-Tas complex is an outstanding monument of art, history and culture in Kazakhstan. A visit to this gorge guarantees an unforgettable experience of the surrounding nature and energy of this ancient sacred site.
The city of nomads or the Nomad fortress on the Ili river in the city of Kapchagai near Almaty is a unique structure built specifically in 2004 for filming the cult feature film “Nomad”. In the process of filming the film, it was decided to erect props for the medieval eastern fortress.
