History

History of Kyrgyzstan

The territory of modern Kyrgyzstan had always been a target for occupation at different times for troops as those of Djingis Khan who crossed the region.

The first people lived here about five thousand years ago, old stone carvings and the 3000-year-old town of Osh can support this fact. The nomadic people of the Kyrgyz first appeared in this area about 2000 years ago and they are considered to be one of the oldest of Central Asia. They went south, coming from the Siberian region Yenisey and established the Kyrgyz Khanate at the beginning of the first millennium.

In the 6th century the majority of early Turkic tribes consolidated and formed the Karakhanid Khanate. One of the most important and flourishing cities was the town named Balasagun where you can also visit the Burana tower belonging to 11th century. It is only one-hour drive from Bishkek.

In the 13th century, the powerful Karakhanid statehood was taken by Djingis Khan, who then formed the Mongol Empire. After the emperor Mongke's death the Khanate was divided into many smaller counties, and the territory of Kyrgyzstan was inside the power of the Chagatai Khanate, the second son of the deceased emperor.

Later, this region was conquered by the Kokand Khanate, dominated by Uzbeks. But after 1873 - 1874 broad national uprising the region fell under power of the Russian Empire. Since 1936 it became one of the Soviet republics of the USSR.

In 1991, the country obtained its independence and since then it is recognized as the Kyrgyz Republic.
