Saint tomb Imam Markozi.

Jeep tours from Shymkent to Tashkent.

"By adopting the rules of the Sunnis, he became an Orthodox believer,
Having descended into the dungeon alone, he received insight.
I saw a lot of fans of the Almighty and understood:
Sinful pleasures and pleasures compartment with a dagger"

Hikmet Khoja Ahmed Yassawi.

Social tours and excursions in Kazakhstan.

Mazar Imam Markozy dates back to the 19th century, located in the village of Enbekshidikan (formerly Shubanak, Chubanak), which is 8.2 kilometers northeast of Turkestan on the road to Kentau, 22.7 kilometers southwest of the city of Kentau, is subordinate to the city administration of Turkestan in the Turkestan region.
Mazar Imam Markozy is located in an old cemetery, on a hill, built of mud bricks. Made in the traditions of the Central Asian school of architecture - a portal-domed structure, typical for the southern regions of Kazakhstan.
The original appearance of the monument is partly hidden by the late extension of the chillyakhana, which is not of architectural and artistic value. The mazar room, which is square in plan, is covered with a conical dome.
The main facade is highlighted by a monumental portal with a vaulted niche and corner towers. Spiral staircases lead to the roof.
