Burana Tower

Burana Tower

Burana Tower was built in 11 century. There was a thriving city on the Great Silk Road - Balasagun. Many traders were coming to that place to sell their good and spend a night. There is a Tower that is 24 meters high now. At that time it was 45 meters high but because of the earthquake in 15 century have of it fell down. This tower was used as a sign for travelers and traders, as a watching tower and as a place to call local people to pray. After the earthquake in the 15 century people were scared to stay in the city. They thought that God did not want them to live there. That is way there ran away in a hurry and did not have the majority of their things. Our archeologist found many artifacts there and you can see some of them in a local museum. The other part of artifacts was taken to Russian in Soviet time. The houses in the city were made of clay and they melt because of time. Now you can see only the tower and a hill nearby that is supposed to be khan's palace.

Also you will see there a cemetery of Balbals. Balabal is a Stone Warrior. In the 7 century people used to make them for honored dead warriors. They were found in different places of Kyrgyzstan and taken to this place in order to save them for next generation.

Nearby you will see ancient petrogliphs - stone paintings. Some of them are from the 8 century B.C. They also were taken to the Balasagun city to be shown for tourists and travelers.
