Bekkul bi mausoleum

The “Bekkul bi mausoleum” is located in the Bekkul baba village. The mausoleum, where Bekkul bi is buried, and the house for visitors, were built in 2000, 20 km from the regional center near the Koskonyr-Kyzylemshek hill.

Bekkul Baba lived in the 40s of the 17th century on the territory in the valley of the Or (Kargala) River. The name of Bekkul as a historical figure was known not only in the Kazakh steppe, but also in Bukhara, Samarkand, Khorezm, among the peoples living in the Urals, but was completely consigned to oblivion during the years of Soviet power. The highly educated judge Becculby, in consultation with the heads of the clans who lived in these places, determined summer pastures and wintering grounds. He made an invaluable contribution to the preservation of the integrity of the people. According to ancient manuscripts, according to the elders, Becculby was not only a biy, but also a clairvoyant, a person with a special gift, recognized as awliye during his lifetime.

The famous Kazakh batyr Eset was born from the only daughter Bekkulbi. There is a legend among the people that Bekkul Baba Eset to batyr at the age of 13 gave an argamak with the blessing of protecting the country and the land. At one time, Eset batyr said: “If, before you ask me, you spend the night with Bekkulaulie, and then your prayers will be answered.”
