“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?”

One of the best examples of the XIX century in Central Kazakhstan. The mausoleum of Konuspai-Labak was built in 1874. In 1982, the Labak Mausoleum was included in the list of historical and cultural monuments of the Kazakh SSR of republican significance and taken under state protection.
In the summer of 1975, he was examined by an expedition of the Ministry of Culture of the Kazakh SSR (M. Mamanbaev, M. Nurkabaev, M. Sembin). In the necropolis, where the Konuspai-Labaka mazar is located, there is a dilapidated mausoleum “Kishkentai” (XVIII century), covered with a carpet pattern.
