Tay Kazan weighs two tons. At the congress of historians, archaeologists, architects in Turkestan, scientists spoke about the true purpose of the cauldron. Despite the fact that it is associated with cooking, in fact, it was intended to store water.

Kenzhetai Dosai, a scientist: “The water from it was given to pilgrims as consecrated after ritual actions. They did not cook food in it. Tourists need to tell about this purpose of the boiler. Unfortunately, in Soviet times, the mausoleum and other objects were considered only as a museum. The connection with culture and history was broken.
