On the Inner Tien-Shan is also a great number of monuments, "the king" of the type affecting soimi size and complexity of the entire funeral, memorial ensemble. For example, in 1981 in an area we have identified Zhapyryk complex mounds are very peculiar construction Ground the fractional parts, to speak about complex architectures singularities burial sites of early kochevninikov Tien Shan. This is a very large earth mounds with a diameter of 30 to 50 m, height 6.4 m and more, located in zhennye chain with C in the south sometimes have on the mound for surface coated with thick armor stones and yes if and only if at the base of these mounds rectangular. The edges of the sole reasons very carefully lined with large stones. In the 7.5-10 m from the base of the mound, repeating her circular or rectangular outline, go-masonry fence 2 meters in width of two rows of large boulders. On the western and eastern sides, they are interrupted, forming as it were, "the WMO Di." At a distance of about 15-20 m from the clutches of chickens fences ganas, mainly in the western part of the ritual ring calculations are 1.5 m in diameter with 7-8 boulders in each. Sometimes, these calculations of large diameter moat and include more boulders. There are cases where the ring and the calculations are on the east side, but they have smaller diameters of boulders and smaller sizes.
Around these large mounds arranged into smaller earthen mounds and stone laying.

He dug up a few small mounds associated high and inside fences. They have not given any material or (Kibirov, 1959, p. 74-75). Most of all ¬, such calculations are rounded stone, located inside the fence surrounding a large central mounds are subordinated ritual or large, they often bezynventarny.
Similar mounds with clutches, fences around, but without the circular calculations we have discovered in the tomb nick Kaynar-Bulak in the Tien Shan region. Cour gana these are close analogies among the mounds Berrkarinskih b Kazakhstan, and probably they are synchronous (Babansky, 1956, p. 189-206, fig. 1 and 2). In any case, consideration of topographical features and details of external features allows you to take them under consideration to ently time.
