Information -

Kydyrsha Ata was one of the famous people of the Adai tribe who lived in the 19th century. He was famous for being able to heal people, treat complex fractures, and those he treated immediately got back on their feet in a very short time. No matter how difficult the fracture was, crossing the threshold of Kydyrsha ata, human bones were set by themselves. At that time, fractures occurred mainly after clearing wells and after falling from a horse. As soon as Kydyrsha ata set off on a multi–day journey to the patient, the broken bones of the person fell into place by themselves, the broken bones gradually joined and the person calmly fell asleep before the arrival of the healer. Kydyrsha ata died in 1915. His abilities were passed on to his descendants. It is said that the pilgrims who spent the night at the grave of Ayagan ata, the son of Kydyrsh ata, also had fractures cured.
