  • This monument during the recent unrest in memory of people who lost their lives for freedom. In addition to the Ala Too Square.

  • The monument itself is worth to be looked at once. Is really interesting on national holidays or may 9. More information in the travel report: "Kyrgyzstan - notes on a trip in the spring 2017" (travel track volume 3) as print and eBook.

  • Monument near the ALA-too square to visit do not have to go far. From the impression that people otpihivajut something "dark" and "light", but the monument is dedicated to sad events-firing demonstration, which was against the transfer of land to China, Kyrgyzstan and died during the revolution of 2010 year. So, "people of the monument" otpihivajut "bad" the past?! That "separate" Heroes monument, if we are talking about freedom?
