Information -

Inside the Itolla mosque there is a well in which sacred water flows, they say that if a bad person approaches the well, the water in it disappears, and if a good person comes in, then the water appears, and if a holy person comes in, then the water turns into milk. Itolla in translation from the Kazakh language means "full yurt" (full of goodness, full of wealth or a prosperous yurt). There has been no water in the well in the Itolla mosque for a long time, the locals attribute this to the fact that there are many bad people in the world and the water has gone out of the well forever. The mosque is very popular. Pilgrims and just people or travelers come to the mosque in order for water to appear in the well, read a prayer here and just stay in a sacred place and relax.
