Mausoleum Beltoran.

The best travel to Mangyshlak.

“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?”

Tourism in Mangystau.

The Beltoran mausoleum is located on the small necropolis of Akshura, 45.6 kilometers east and slightly south of the city of Fort Shevchenko and 14 kilometers southwest of the Sultan-epe underground mosque in the Tupkaragan district of the Mangistau region.
The masonry of the walls of the Beltoran mausoleum is made of large vertical blocks and horizontal slabs, making the mausoleum related to the previous monuments. The ornamental decoration of the tympanum of the niche of the main facade contains plant motifs.
The contour image of a horse with a gender sign also testifies to the antiquity of the monument. Due to the complete loss of the coating, it is difficult to judge the design and shape of the dome of the mausoleum. The monument dates back to the XIV century.
Geographic coordinates of the Beltoran mausoleum: N44 ° 27'03.98 "E50 ° 50'01.89"
