Tamgaly Gorge located 170 km north-west of Almaty city. This is virtually an ancient art gallery, where are depicted individual animals and people as well as the whole scenes from the life of ancient people. The total number of drawings in the main gorge - about 2,000. There are images of solar deities, clowns, soldiers, married couples, pregnant women, multi-figure compositions, scenes of hunting and sacrifice. Most of the petroglyphs date back to the Bronze Age and are made in "animal" style of Sakas.

For centuries the rocks of this canyon and narrow valley of Tamgaly retained value of the sanctuary - the place where ritual ceremonies were hold, magic rituals were performed, worship of the gods and the spirits of ancestors took place.
