Site of an ancient town Kazakly-jatkan (Akshahan-kala)
Temple settlement Akshahan Kala belongs to the III-II centuries BC. According to scientists some found portraits depict Khorezm kings of previously unknown dynasties. Also, experts suggest that the fort was one of the first capitals of the ancient Khorezm state, and the temple was the sanctuary of ancient Khorezm kings dynasty. That part of the ancient city is surrounded by thick walls at the center of which was an unusual structure, predetermined as a mausoleum where the remains of the first kings of independent Khorezm might be buried. The northwestern part of the "holy city" was occupied by a group of buildings which were a temple-palace complex according to excavations carried out there. The temple complex is a part of the construction of square plan with semicircular towers at the corners of the entrances in the middle of all four walls, on both sides of which were also towers. The walls of the temple were a double-mounted corridor.
