Tamgaly Tas – is an “open-air temple” in the middle of a steppe. In translation from old Kazakh means “sealed or stamped stone”. This place, along with its 15 scattered stones by the Ili River had a special; political, spiritual, and religious meaning for the rulers. Central exposition on the stones is Buddha deities, Tibetan iconography, and inscriptions by Galdan-Huntaydzhi. There is also a thanksgiving praise inscription left by the Volga Kalmyks. A stamp signature belonging to the great Kazakh khan Ablay, after the expulsion of Dzungars, is particularly appreciated by Kazakh people.
