Abstract 
Lives and destiny of the farther and son – Mukhamedkhan Seitkulov and Kayum Mukhamedkhan – united the people around cultural and spiritual values, bringing together three centuries.

The lecture describes the family house of Mukhamedkhan Seitkulov – a centre of culture, featuring a well-stock library with manuscripts and books published in the 20th century; a house, bringing together prominent artists, writers, poets, and publishers. The spiritual atmosphere of the house impacted and shaped Kayum Mukhamedkhan, who continued his father’s efforts, as it pertained to preserving large cultural layers, and fought to maintain the culture during the times, which were most tragic in the history of Kazakh people.
