The crucial aspects of the state policy include the research and integrated study of the history and culture of the Turkmen people. Large and fruitful activities on the preservation and restoration of historical and cultural monuments have been conducted for many years. Last year, restoration work at one of the amazing heritage sites of our country – Halimberdy (Kerimberdy) Ishan Mosque was completed under the scientific supervision of specialists from the National Directorate for the Protection, Study and Restoration of Historical and Cultural Monuments under the Ministry of Culture of Turkmenistan.
The mosque stands in one of the streets of Bagir. It was built at the very beginning of the 20th century, but the 1948 earthquake badly damaged it. Later, the surviving building was listed in the State Register as a monument of history and culture.
