The burial place of the fearless warrior who died at the hands of the Dzungarian invaders is located near the village of Sergeyevka in the Atbasar district. Nearby is a hill, called “Kiikbay adyry”. The monument is in a dilapidated condition. Currently, only the front part of the round mausoleum is preserved, the opposite wall is destroyed and littered with ruins. A small contour of an elongated dome-shaped form is clearly visible in the through opening. At the end of the XX century on the hill “Kiikbay adyry” a new mausoleum was installed. The walls of the modern building are made of stones imitating a medieval monument. The upper part is half open, with five metal poles, forming a broad dome, the symbolic crescent moon completes the design and a commemorative plaque says: ” Kiikbay batyr Baikarauly lived in 1693-1741″.
