Taraz is the largest modern city in the south of Kazakhstan. Few people know that its history goes back more than one and a half thousand years. The archaeological study of ancient Taraz began in 2011, reaching its climax in 2014. In the very center of the city, under the layers of asphalt, archaeologists discovered medieval temples, baths, stone-paved streets, and a developed water supply system.
