About construction of the museum and its builder





After the death of Ayimkhan Shamuratova in 1993, her children decided to build Amet and Ayimkhan Shamuratov’s House Museum. For this reason, a plot of 12 acres was allocated by the government of Karakalpakstan. It was near the house where Ayimkhan Shamuratova lived.

The construction site was headed by her son-in-law, the honored builder of Karakalpakstan – Tauybaldiev Sultamurat Karlybaevich.

The History of the Museum

Taubaldiev Sultamurat Karlybaevich was born on May 9, 1947, in the family of a dekhkan - a poor man in the Sverdlov state farm of the Leninabad district (now the Kanlykol district), where Ayimkhan Shamuratova was born.
He studied in Karakalpak school. From childhood he was interested in mathematics, participated in school, city and republican Olympiads. His childhood was hard. His mother died when he was 9 years old.
His elder brother Abdibay studied in Tashkent at that time. Sultan and his two younger brothers - 6 years old Erezhep and 6 month Bazarbay were left without a mother.

The History of the Museum
Despite a very difficult childhood, Sultan studied perfectly well and after graduating the school, he went to Moscow and entered the higher technical school named after Bauman.
Successfully finishing it, he entered in graduate school. After graduating from graduate school, he came back to Nukus, and married Ayimgul, the youngest daughter of Ayimkhan Shamuratova.

In Karakalpakstan, under his leadership, many houses of rural areas were built. He also built kindergartens, schools, mosques, state institutions, hospitals and so on. There is probably no such corner in Karakalpakstan, where Sultan would not participate in the construction.

He loved reading books from his childhood. He collected a large collection of books of world classics. Sultan also was a lover of music. He used to listen to world classics of Chopin, Mozart, Tchaikovsky, Muslim Magomayev and of course he loved Karakalpak songs based on lyrics by Berdakh, Azhiniyaz, Makhtymuly performed by A. Khozhalepesov, Genzhebai Tileumuratov, Amet Tarihov, Turganbay Kurbanov, and also was fond of listening to the songs performed by Ayimkhan Shamuratova. He admired her and said that Ayimkhan Shamuratova was a model of imitation for the younger generation.
Since 2004, the disease has been creep up to him. He had II type diabetes. He had surgery on his eyes, as a result his vision was 30%, then his kidneys failed, and at the same time the gangrene of his right leg began. In Tashkent, he was on dialysis for 6 months: then his son took him to Pakistan for a kidney transplant. He underwent a kidney transplant, and in the same place his right foot was amputated. Sultan was brought to Tashkent in a very grave condition, and then, at his request, to the city of Nukus. The doctor Kholodova, who observed the patients after kidney transplantation, examined him and said that he only had one month to live - it was November 2006. But Sultan did not give up - Dr. Ramil Sherlanov began to treat him.
Exercise, the will to live and the right treatment showed its results. Sultan continued to live began to drive to work, drove in a carriage to the car, and then he sat down near the driver, so he helped his eldest son, who headed the house-building factory, after him in the work of the plant. He built two many-storey houses, two schools in rural locations, each 150 km from Nukus, in the town of Mangit and in the town of Kungrad. Near the museum of Amet and Ayimkhan Shamuratova he built a hotel called "Jipek-Joli" ("Silk Road”) and also participated in the period of a construction of a new hotel building.

He helped his son to build a college.
Despite the diseases that tormented him during sleepless nights with a fracture of the hip joint, he continued to work. When all the relatives told him that he did not have to work, he replied that as soon as he arrived at work, he felt better and better.


Here we unwillingly compare him with Ostrovsky and the hero of the USSR Maresiev. Karakalpak Maresiev !. He always helped people, sympathized with them, was sick for them, he loved people, friends, relatives,his wife and children, grandchildren.
The only thing that was very tragic was that he could not hear his favorite tunes at the end of his life.

In honor of Sultamurat Taubaldiyev, the builder of the Shamuratovs Museum, a documentary film was shot by Tashkent documentary filmmakers and the book called "Trial of Fate” was published in Tashkent in 2012.

His doctor Ramil Sherlanov composed a poems him.

Poems of Sherlanov, the doctor

In memory of Karakalpak Maresiev, Sultamurat (Dedication to my patient Sultamurat Tauybaldiyev)

With a serious illness you fought,
Though he lived with a transplant!
Blind, deaf, left without legs,
But he was always in the ranks of people!

Though I felt pain when shaking,
You did not spare yourself in your work!
And wheelchairs
Peace asked from you!

You lived, you thought, argued with everyone,
He wrote stories and poems!
They will open to everyone once
Your spiritual touches, (stitches)!

Good bye, my friend! I do not forget
Your judgments subtle mind!
I will always remember you,
In me you lit a lot of thoughts!
