Visiting the grave of the batyr and its landmarks named after the great warrior.
A day trip to visit the grave of the famous warrior Malaysary. In honor of the Kazakh batyr they named a railway station in the Almaty region, a favorite mountain pass in Almaty, as well as the mountain range. Malaysary Ridge is a spur of the Jungar Alatau with the length of 80 km, stretching between the Ili river and Arkharly pass along Almaty-Taldykorgan highway.
Malaysary Batyr was a close associate of Abylaikhan. In the few documentary sources that have survived till our time, Ablai Khan highly valued his abilities and merits. He played a key role in liberating Abylai khan from the Jungar captivity. For courage and great peacefulness Jungar khan Galdan Tseren gave Malaysary "Tarhan" title.
Malaysary originates from Bayanaul, Pavlodar region, basentiin family of Argyn tribe.
By the fifties of the XVIII century Dzungar
Khanate weakened, and the Sultan Abylai planning to influence the choice of an
heir to the throne of Jungars, spoke with the troops towards the Kazakh-Jungar
border. Malaysary joined the army with his troops, marched on Dzungaria, but,
unfortunately, a great Batyr who survived through many battles was killed by a
stray enemy arrow. Warriors buried him on one of the spurs of Jungar Alatau,
which now bears his name.
