Burial Ground Koshkarbai.

Tour from Astana to Borovoe national park.

 “That was the day the ancient songs of blood and war spilled from a hole in the sky
And there was a long moment as we listened and fell silent in our grief and then one by one, we stood tall and came together and began to sing of life and love and all that is good and true
And I will never forget that day when the ancient songs died because there was no one in the world to sing them” 

Brian Andreas.

Excursion from Almaty to Astana.

It is located in the valley formed by Chaglinka and Koshkarabika Rivers. The burial ground reaches Koshkarbai Hill. The burial ground consists of approximately 50 tombstone structures (it is impossible to set the exact number because some of them were destroyed and some of them were excavated).
It represents rectangular, round stony fences and earth mounds surrounded by rings. On the territory of the monument there are two stone women standing near the structures of Turk times and there is also fallen menhir (around 3 m long).
In 1973 two graves in the south-western part of the burial ground were opened. Four of them relate to Turk period. The rest belong to the Bronze Age. Geographical coordinates N 53° 02’ 36.9” E 69° 00’ 50.1” Elev 2 89 m.
