15 Things to Do in Kyrgyzstan

Things to Do in Kyrgyzstan

Kyrgyzstan is not a very flashy tourist destination if you want to see big buildings, intricately designed architectural structures and modern amusement parks. No, you won’t find that here. What you will mostly find in the country, as listed in this Kyrgyzstan travel guide, is abundance in natural beauty like lakes and summits. There are a few structures built centuries ago which complement the picturesque scenery of Kyrgyzstan.

15. Shakh-Fazil Archaeological Complex

There is a story behind the Shakh-Fazil Archaeological Complex. It all started more than 1,000 years ago when the Muslims invaded Ferghana Valley (the area). The locals weren’t happy about it and so they plotted to kill their captors during their most vulnerable time (Friday prayer congregation) and they succeeded.

A local woman by the name of Bulan, who was a faithful consort to Jarir (the Arab leader), tended to the dead soldiers and Allah rewarded her. Jarir’s son, Shakh-Fazil, learned about the ambush, he came back and captured the place. He was the one who had the mausoleum created. Today, you will see Bulan’s shrine in the area and a necropolis of the 2,700 soldiers who died in the massacre.
