Taraz city. Kazakhstan photos
The town of Taraz (Talas) ("City of Merchants") is more than 2 000 years old.

Just outside modern-day Taraz (15-18 km away) are the Babaji-Khatun Mausoleum (10-11th centuries) and Aisha-Bibi Mausoleum (11-12th centuries), masterpieces of ancient architecture that are listed as the world architectural rarities by UNESCO.

 

Aisha-Bibi Mausoleum

As the legend says, the Mausoleum was created by one of the Karalhanid Dynasty King under the tomb of Aisha-Bibi - his pretty bride the daughter of Hakim-Ata Sufi poet. As the legend says an insidious snake killed the life of young lover. The building is decorated by terracotta stones, plant and geometrical patterns. The mausoleum looks incredibly light and elegant. Aisha-Bibi Mausoleum is a bright masterpiece of ancient architectures.
