The head of the research center "Sacral Kazakhstan" Berik Abdygaliev told that to determine the sacral objects the center delivered its proposals to the regions before we compiled the list. Regions created working groups, which included historians, scientists, public figures, and work began. We took into account all proposal of the working groups. Therefore, the development of this list is largely the result of work carried out in the regions.

Finally, within the main project the research center «Sacred Kazakhstan» identified 500 objects of local importance.

Yesterday, the list of sacred places was discussed at a meeting of the scientific-expert council of the center. It was devoted to the identification of sacred sites, taking into account the received proposals and their inclusion in the list. The director of the Institute of the Nation’s History Burkitbai Ayagan, doctor of historical sciences, professor Zeynolla Samashev, deputy chairman of the Republican veteran’s organization, professor Omirzak Ozganbaev, doctor of historical sciences, professor Zhambyl Artykbayev and other famous persons took part in the event. The head of the research center "Sacred Kazakhstan" Berik Abdygaliev conducted the meeting.

According to the head of the center, this is not a religious and not a scientific, but a spiritual project. Therefore, first of all, their cultural value will be promoted. This project is designed for five years. This year, the goal is to determine 100 objects of national level, widely known among the people. The National Commission will analyze this list and within one or two months will approve it.
