Sarytau-II burial ground is located in Almaty Oblast, 3,1 km west of Kegen Village, 2,6 km west of Oktober Village in Raimbek District, 200 km south of the farm. The main constructions of the monument have been discovered in 1960s. In 2006 Almaty expedition of A.Margulan Institute of Archaeology undertook prospecting of an archaeological site. Burial complex occupies the northern part of the Sarytau valley on the right bank of the Kegen River, opposite Kegen Village. It is situated in the foothill plain of the southern slopes of Uzynkara Rridge, close to the gorge entrance, on the left bank of the dried-up stream. In the Early Iron Age necropolis together with Sarytau-I burial ground formed a single burial complex.
The site consists of more than 20 barrows of the Early Iron Age and about 50 mounds of the Bronze Age. The central part of the cemetery is marked by a large kurgan 16 m in diameter and 0,5 m high.
Barrows of the Early Iron Age are stretched to 4 lines oriented from north-east to south-west. Earth and stone embankments are fallen, flattened, with a stone ring encircling the basis, covered with turf. Diameters vary from 4 to 16 m, 0,1 to 0,5 m high. Kurgans are spread at distance of 12 - 36 m. Construction features, shapes of embankments and planning structure date the monument by the Wu-sun period of the Early Iron Age.
The Bronze Age barrows are concentrated in the central and northern parts of the site. They are represented by circular or oval enclosures 2-4 m in diameter, 0,1 - 0,2 m high. Fences encircle rectangular or oval stone boxes or cists from 0,5 x 0,8 to 2,5 x 1,2 m. This type of grave construction goes in contradiction with burial monuments of Kulsai culture of the Late Bronze Age. The nearest burial complex of the same type is located opposite the road to the Kegen Pass in the foothills of the northern slopes of Kuluktau Ridge. One of the well known researched monuments of this type in Jetysu - the Bronze Age Karakuduk burial ground - was studied by A.G.Maksimova in 1957. This burial complex corresponds to the tribal group of Andronovo cultural-historical community of the Fedorovo culture and dates by the XVI-XIII c. BC. Due to this fact Sarytau-II burials of the Bronze Age are the earliest in the Kegen valley. They witness the process of land development of this alpine valley by the middle of the II millennium BC.
