One of the famous sacred places in the Aktobe region is the "Khan Molasy" memorial complex on the necropolis , where the khan of the younger zhuz Abulkhair Khan is buried.
Until the late 1990s, this place was a large cemetery in the Aktobe region that arose in the second half of the XVIII century. Numerous archaeological studies have been carried out at the site of the necropolis in order to prove the authenticity of the burial of Abulkhair Khan in it. In 2011, scientists from Hungary, based on the DNA of the remains of one of the burials, were able to confirm that they almost 100 percent corresponded to the DNA of direct and living descendants of Abulkhair Khan. Moreover, the image of Abulkhair Khan himself was recreated.
On the occasion of the 550th anniversary of the founding of the Kazakh Khanate in 2015, a memorial complex was built on the site of the Khan Molasy necropolis, including a memorial stele and a tombstone mausoleum. The architectural monument is made of white granite, has a height of 25 meters. The mausoleum is decorated with ancestral Kazakh tamgas. Three steles-banners, soaring up in the center of the complex, symbolize the concept of the activity of Abulkhair Khan, who managed to unite the Kazakh zhuzes. In total, there are about 1,000 graves in the Khan Molasy necropolis.
The object is considered a sacred place for pilgrimage, and is also one of the most beautiful architectural structures in Kazakhstan with a real historical basis.
