Back Previous Tamgaly-Tas


Tamgaly-Tas is an archeological site about 120 kilometers north of the city of Almaty on the banks of the Ili River. It is an open-air temple with a multitude of petroglyphs representing the four-armed deity Bodhisattva Avalokiteshvara-Shadakshari, and scenes from life. They were made by the Oirat and Tibetan masters. Although they look like petroglyphs made in the Stone Age, they are much younger and date to the second half of the 17th century.
