Turkestan Travel GuideEdit This The best resource for sights, hotels, restaurants, bars, what to do and see
Turkestan is about a 3.5 hour "fear factor" drive from Kyzylorda, or 2.5 hour drive away from Ugam.
1500 years old, Turkistan is famous for the great Mausoleum built in the late 14th century. Thus great emir Timur honored an outstanding poet and sufisheikh, Hodja Akhmed Yassawi. The mausoleum was later also used as a Kazakh khan's (king's) palace and a place for burial for the noble men.
