Walking the streets of what was once a flourishing settlement, you are plunged into the world of oriental fairy tales, imagining how a thousand years ago the mufti called the people to prayers from the minaret.

At present the minaret tower stands at about 20 meters, around half its original height. Unfortunately, a massive earthquake turned the mediaeval Balasagyn to ruins did not spare its highest construction. This historical complex caught the attention of scientific researchers as early as the 19th century.
