Balbal

Traveling around the Taraz city, you can see the unusual stone sculptures. Balbals - an integral part of memorial structures of ancient Turks. They are installed in pre-Islamic times the burial place of the noble fellow. Among the scientists still have not resolved contentious issues associated with these silent messengers of centuries, and the people there mystically - reverent attitude to the "stone people". Photographing them, I noticed that each time the camera is clicked, a strong gust of wind increased even more.
