Sheikhantaur memorial complex

The memorial complex of the holy Sheikh Hovendi Tahur, who lived in the XIV century, consists of three buildings: the tomb of Khovendi Tahura (XV-XIX centuries), the tomb of Kaldirchovich-biya (15th c.) And the mosque. In both tombs there is a place for ziarathon (places of worship and prayers) and gurkhons (grave). The tomb is crowned by a hemispherical dome. According to the legend, the opposition of the Dzungar tribe was headed by Tolebi, the ruler of Tashkent, who came from the Kazakh tribe of Dulat.According to folk legend, when countless Dzungar hordes began to approach from the east, people fled in panic, throwing their homes. And Tolebi did not leave his house. The chief of the Dzungars ordered him to go to court, and asked him if he really was not afraid of anything. Tolebi replied that he did not want to disassemble his yurt and destroy the swallow's nest with newborn chicks. This recognition so touched the severe Dzungar that he did not do harm to this righteous person or his relatives.Since then, Tolebi became known under the name of Kaldirchovich-Biy - "The Host of the Swallow". Subsequently, the Kaldirgoch-biy inspired the people to fight against the Jungars, and after the expulsion of the foreigners, he was elected governor of Tashkent. After his death, he was buried with great honors near the grave of the holy Sheikh Hovendi Tahur.The complex of the mosque was recently built with the funds of the Muslim diaspora in Kazakhstan, whose representatives often come to the grave of Kaldirchoch-biya. On the territory of the complex is also the mausoleum of Yunuskan Mogolistani (1414-1487), who was one of the rulers of Tashkent
