A unique complex of monuments of historical and cultural heritage is located 170 km northwest of Almaty, 5 km from the village of Karabastau. The archaeological complex includes more 5000 petroglyphs and several dozens of other monuments: settlements, burial grounds, altars, quarries belonging to different historical eras. The most valuable part of the complex represent petroglyphs of the Middle Bronze Age, presumably they have direct attitude to the intertribal sanctuary.

Researchers note a high aesthetic value, and possibly the degree of emotional and spiritual impact that allowed scientists highlight the special style “type of Tanbala petroglyphs”. Included in 2004 in the list of objects UNESCO World Heritage Site, “Petroglyphs of the Archaeological Landscape of Tanbaly” forever recorded their inextricable connection with the landscape of the small hills Chy-Ili.

Thousands of drawings cover the rocks of the Tanbala tract. Petroglyphs - rock paintings left by people of bygone eras. Under what circumstances did these drawings appear, who are their authors? science is still conducting research and scientists are building new theories. For more than 150 years, scientists have been struggling to unravel the secrets of these incomprehensible cave prints.
