The inscription on the first gravestone is made in the Tartar language and contains the date of 818 AH (1415/1416). This epigraphic artefact is another example of gradual transition from the Arabic to the Tartar language in epitaphs in 15 th c. The second inscription in the Ottoman Turkish language contains the name of the dead and the date of 1180 AH (1766/1767).
