Mausoleum of Khoja Ahmed Yasawi & Arystanbab

The mausoleum of Khoja Ahmed Yasawi is the central object in the territory of the historical and cultural museum-reserve "Hazret Sultan". The Khazret-Sultan memorial complex, besides the Khoja Ahmed Yasawi mausoleum, includes many other buildings built next to it in different years, such as: the medieval bath (Mansa), the cell (Helvet) - where Yassavi lived after he turned 63 years old, the mausoleum of the great-granddaughter of Tamerlane and the daughter of the astronomer Ulugbina Rabiy - Sultan Begim, the mausoleum of the Kazakh Khan Yessim, shildekhan and many other antiquities monuments.

 

Arystan Bab Mausoleum is a mausoleum in Kazakhstan close to the village of Kogam and Otrartobe.

A legend states that Emir Timur ordered the construction of a mosque on the site of Khoja Akhmet Yassawi's grave but all attempts were unsuccessful. Timur was then told in a dream that in order to have success he should first build a mausoleum over grave of the mystic Arystan Baba.

The mausoleum dates from the 14th century and is constructed over Arystan Baba's 12th-century grave but was reconstructed several times up to the 18th century. In the 18th century the previous mausoleum, which had been destroyed by an earthquake was replaced with a double domed structure supported by two carved wooden columns. Most of the current structure was constructed in the first decade of the 20th century with only the carved wooden pillars remaining from the original building.
