Guide to Hiking in Mangyshlak mountains.

The Akshora (Akshura) necropolis is located in the 47.8 kilometers to the east and a little to the south from town Fort-Shevchenko and 12.3 kilometers to the south-west of the Sultan-epe underground mosque in the Tupkaragan district of the Mangistau region.
The Akshora necropolis unites burials, mainly koitases of the XVth - XVIIIth centuries. Not far from the mausoleum there are ancient burials, which scientists date to the Oguz-Kipchak period of the X century. At the entrance to the necropolis there is a small dilapidated mosque.
The walls of the mosque are built of vertical stone slabs. There is a mihrab stone made of processed shell rock with a relief image of a lancet niche. According to researchers, a representative of the Kipchak-Nogai tribes inhabiting the territory of the Mangyshlak Peninsula is buried here.
