Koshkar Ata

Islamic Tomb in Mangistau

One of the most interesting necropolises in Mangistau, Koshkar Ata is a skyline of miniature domes and towers that resembles some fairy-tale city. Just inside the entrance is a fine old koshkar-tas (ram). It's located at Akshukur, beside the main road 15km north of Aktau.
