Sauryk is truly a national hero who committed bravery in ruthless battles against Orman Khan in summer 1816 in Karakystaku gorge in Bestamak areas, in a depression of Tikendisay spring in Kastek gorges.
Sauryk and Suranshy are the natives from Eskozha tribe of Shapyrashty, charted in Kazakh history into the Senior Juz in the nineteenth century, the military leaders in the fight against the invasion of Kokand, Kirghiz khans, brave Kazakh batyrs. The main merit of Suranshy and Sauryk in history – they protected Zhetisu – the ancestral land as apple of the eye, going through fire and water, in a merciless battle against soldiers of neighboring countries, showing courage and heroism, but on the way to independence, they were killed as soldiers defending their homeland. Their dreams of a bright future of the country came true today. Their names and heroic deeds will forever remain in the memory of the people, as evidenced by the monument erected on the Almaty - Bishkek highway, 3 km above Zhanakurylys village of Zhambyl district.
