“If you follow the ancient maps written on the stars, no person will ever understand you. So if you could read these maps, would you follow them? And forever be misunderstood? Or would you close your eyes tightly and pretend to be like everyone else?”

Special excursion to Katon-Karagai park.

Two times I was on ruins of the Buddhist monastery Ablaykit, and every time, behind deficiency of time, did not manage to examine in details, stone fencings which are constructed caring hands of monks. And only in June, 2017, it was succeeded to examine in details stone walls which are near ruins of the Buddhist monastery.
It is necessary to pay attention that, these constructions, look, as fencings, but if you rise on some escaped from them, then it appears, on them it is possible to move. In some places it very well is noticeable. Moving on a stone wall and when she unites, to a natural big stone, the movement continues on this stone, from the opposite side which the stone wall proceeds.
And so, the surface, this natural stone on which people went and which served as continuation of a stone wall is very strongly erose and visually it very well is noticeable. Perhaps, it is a stone wall, it was laid out for observation of the surrounding area and for movement to the necessary and convenient place.
Fragments of these walls are located only from North side from the current excavation of the Buddhist monastery Ablaykit, in the granite foothills of the mountains Koktau. From South side the monastery was fenced with an earth shaft which and until now, is well looked through.
