Underground Mosque of Sacred Beket Ata

Located in the Mangystau Region of Kazakhstan the Underground Mosque of Sacred Beket Ata is a religious monument of architecture which dates back to the XVIII century.

The road to the mosque is dusty. 4x4 vehicles recommended. This trail passes through remote areas, so you need to be prepared. This route is not suitable for normal cars. This underground mosque is located between the northwestern tip of the Mangystau mountains and the western edge of the Ustyurt Plateau.

If you dare to take the risk and travel along this dusty and bumpy route, then make sure to be driven by someone who has experience of the road. Starting from Uzen the road is 97.2 km long. Along the way, there are a couple smaller points of pilgrimage where most groups stop along the way.
