Tash Rabat is a well-preserved 15th century stone caravanserai in At Bashy districtNaryn ProvinceKyrgyzstan. Some[who?] argue that it was originally aNestorian or Buddhist monastery going back to the tenth century. It is located somewhat east of the main north-south highway.

To the south is Lake Chatyr-Kul and Torugart Pass. To the north is Koshoy Korgon, a ruined fortress of uncertain date. The area is a center for hiking and horse-trekking.
