PETROGLYFI TAMGALS TAS 1 day

Tamgaly-Tás (“stones with signs / written stones”) is a tract near the Ili River, 120 km north of the city of Almaty, where many petroglyphs, images of mysterious deities, and late Buddhist inscriptions are preserved on the rocks. Among the petroglyphs, there are about a thousand rock images, among which the most famous are the images of Buddha Shakyamuni, the Buddha of Limitless Light Amitabha and the bodhisattva of Infinite Sympathy Avalokiteshvara. In addition to Buddhist drawings and inscriptions there is a stone with ancient Türkic runic inscriptions of the 8th-9th centuries, supposedly left by the Kipchaks. [1] Tamgaly-Tas is protected by the government of Kazakhstan as a cultural monument and is an open-air Buddhist temple, as evidenced by a sign at the entrance to the tract.
