The new complex brings back to our memory the historical past of the people, ignites spirituality in our hearts, calls for great deeds. "
A few centuries ago on the top of Otpan tau, Kazakhs from the Adai clan kindled a fire, which served as a signal of impending danger. Having seen it, the jigits gathered to give a worthy rebuff to the invaders, to preserve their native land intact. Today, the sacred fire of Oneness, lit on the day of the celebration of Amal Mikkemesi on March 14, symbolizes the desire for spiritual unity of the people through turning to their origins, serving as the unifying principle and spiritual center for the embodiment of the idea of Mangilik El.
"After the adoption of "Madeni mura" state program, the work on preserving the cultural heritage of the sacred land of Mangystau received an incentive for renewal. One of such projects became the historical and cultural complex "Otpan tau". I instruct the Head of the regional department of culture Bekbola Bazarbayev to plan the construction of a new facility in the complex as a gift for the celebration of the 90th anniversary of the Mangystau district next year", - said Akim of the Mangystau region Eraly Tugzhanov.
