АР08855925 «Holy places of the Kazakhs of Central Asia (Kyrgyzstan, Tajikistan, Turkmenistan, Karakalpakstan): identification, classification and research»

Currently, the Department of Ethnology and Anthropology is developing a grant funding project «Holy places of the Kazakhs of Central Asia (Kyrgyzstan, Tajikistan, Turkmenistan, Karakalpakstan): identification, classification and research» (supervisor – Doctor of History, Professor Akhmet Toktabay). This study is a continuation of the previous one. Initially, the goal was to study the historical and cultural heritage of the Kazakhs living in the territories of neighboring states. First of all, Uzbekistan was studied separately due to the fact that a large number of monuments related to the history of the Kazakh people are concentrated there. Further, the remaining countries of Central Asia, where the Kazakh population lives, are examined.

The relevance of this study is that now many monuments that are directly related to the history of the Kazakhs living on the territory of neighboring states are on the verge of extinction. Either there is no one to take care and look after them, or they are recorded as monuments of the history of other peoples. Therefore, it was decided to investigate them, include them in the register of historical monuments and forever leave them in science as a heritage of Kazakh history and culture.

The purpose of studying this topic can be called the identification, research and inclusion in the register of historical monuments of the holy places of the Kazakhs in Central Asia.

The expected results are: a register of saints and historical sites, publications in high-ranking journals, a monograph and a collection of articles.

The achieved results include a list of Kazakh monuments in Kyrgyzstan and Tajikistan, publications on the research topic, as well as the monograph «Қазақтың киелі жерлері».

During business trips to Kyrgyzstan and Tajikistan in 2021, the scientific supervisor of the project Toktabay A.U. sacred places related to the history of the Kazakh people were examined.

The place where the Kazakh Khan Takhir came to the Kirghiz in 1536 and became a khan was determined. Santas is a burial ground erected in honor of the victory of the Kazakh Khan Yesim over the Dzungars, when he was the Khan of the Kazakhs and Kirghiz. It is established that it was erected by his decree. Evidence of campaigns of the Kazakh batyrs Kabanbai, Kokzhal Barak, Sauryk and others in the Kyrgyz lands was found. The graves and winter quarters of the biys Boranbai and Sartai, who met with Ch. Valikhanov, were investigated. Detailed studies of the dacha-museum of M. Auezov have been carried out.

In Tajikistan, the small homeland of M.Kh. Dulati and the places of death of his grandfather Mahmud Sultan and his sons. The service and life of the first member of the Tajik government A. Yarmukhamedov were studied. Kazakh mazars and madrasahs were taken into account.

The results of the work performed were reflected in the publication of 2 articles in the KOKSON journals, 1 article in the Kazakh edition, 1 article in the materials of the international conference, 3 materials in the media, 2 reports at round tables and other events. A collection of materials «Holy places of the Kazakhs» (20 printed sheets) was published.

As a result of the research, a list of holy places was compiled based on the results of expeditions to Kyrgyzstan and Tajikistan, consisting of 45 names.
