“They told me:“ You were silent, but you are arguing with you ?!”
I replied: "The words (in this case) are the keys to the door of evil."
Honor to those who are silent before an ignoramus and a fool, in silence is the preservation of honor and dignity”

The mausoleum of Baubek Batyr is located in the village of Kyzyl-Tu, the village of Ishim, Zhaksynsky district, Akmola region. Baubek Bekmurzauly was born in 1824 in the territory of the Kokshetau region. His father Bekmurza was a rich and famous man of his time.
Baubek lost his father and mother early. At the age of nine, he falls into the inner circle of the famous khan Kenesary Kasymov. Subsequently becomes his adoptive son. He is studying military affairs. From his youth, Baubek possessed unprecedented natural strength, and was distinguished by his stamina.
At the age of 15 - 16 he took part in one of the major battles with the Kirghiz and became famous by defeating the famous Kyrgyz batyr Otynsha. And since then Baubek Batyr began to be called. During the preparation and conduct of the rebellion, Kenesary was one of his devoted assistants.
Kenesary himself and his warriors, including Nauryzbay’s younger brother, were killed. Baubek batyr was captured, but he managed to escape and return to his native land. After the defeat of the Kenesary rebellion, Baubek batyr, along with his many tribesmen, migrated to the Tersakan River.
Here they united and settled, suggest where Tersakan flows into Ishim. The current village of Tersakan was formed by them. Due to the fact that he enjoyed the respect of his people, was his advocate, participant in the uprising against the tsarist government, because of the steadfastness of his views, the tsarist administration sent him to the Tyumen region, where he died in 1884.
Thus, Baubek batyr was not destined to be buried in his native land. But when they took him to places of detention, he chopped off one finger with his saber, left something from his clothes and bequeathed: “... I apparently was not destined to return to these places.
When you hear of my death, bury it all here as part of my body.” After rumors reached that Baubek Batyr had died, his relatives buried a finger and clothes in the town of Besoba with all honors, laid out a large mazar of stone on the current territory of the Kyzyl Tu aul.
The descendants of the batyr in memory of their famous ancestor by common forces built the Mausoleum of Baubek Bekmurza ula, the grand opening of which took place on October 16, 1993. Aul Kyzyl Tu was renamed and is now called "Aul Baubek Batyr".
For well-known reasons, the names of people associated with the Kenesary Kasymov movement have long been forgotten, so the life and work of Baubek Batyr is not well understood. Little has been preserved about him of historical materials.
But many Kazakh writers turned to the depiction of his image in his works: Ilyas Yesenberlin in the historical nomad trilogy, Sabyr Sharipov in the novel "The Order of the Kolya" (Lake Erdena), his name is mentioned in the History of the Kazakh SSR, edited by famous historian Ermukhan Bekmakhanov.
