Koblandy batyr complex in village Jirenkopa.

Pilgrimage to holy monuments in Aktobe region.

"Coming Koblandy
He began to train the brave Estemes.
Whatever the day, they hunted wild goats,
They fought if the enemy met.
Once with Estemes alone
Lying at the foot of the mountain
When to hearing Koblandy
There was a loud noise.
On the other side of the mountain
The dust swirled high
An incessant hum was heard.
"What's that noise?" - asked
Estemes has a hero.
Then Estemes says
Here is what he says:
"On the other side of the mountain
There is a huge country
Koktym Aimak rules there,
Many thousands of people with him.
The people that are under his authority
Richly, freely lives.
He has a daughter, her name is Kortka,
She is famous for grace.
To the moon
They put a pole there,
Gold coin on a pillar.
Who shoots a coin with an arrow,
He will take the beautiful Kortka."
