- Saimaluu Tash
The Saimaluu-Tash tract is one of the world's petroglyphic shopping galleries. It is located about 200 km from the city of Jalal-Abad. The gallery extends to tens of hectares, at an altitude of 2800-3400 m. Petroglyphs, which can be seen in Saimaluu-Tash, belong to different eras from ancient times (II millennium BC) to the Middle Ages (I-VIII centuries), therefore they are made in different styles. They are applied to more than 10,000 large stones scattered throughout. From the depth of the history and the form of the drawings, one can “read” the history, understand how the culture and worldview of people changed at different times. Thus, the Saimaluu-Tash Gallery is the most important source of knowledge about the life and lives of people, their daily activities and beliefs. The figures depict people and animals, hunting scenes, plowing and domestication of wild animals, religious rites and rituals. The road to the tract Saimaluu-Tash is passable only in summer, the rest of the time there is snow.
