  • If you came to Osh #KYRGYZSTAN and leave without visiting the SULAIMAN MOUNTAIN, then you missed the MAIN destination / heritage of country  more »
  • The brightest attraction of this museum is that it is located in the mountains. The content (content) did not impress me. A bit enlightening, but exhibits any "cheap", "unrealistic" or something. Guides try to do their job. But it's time to change the content of the lectures. But if there is free time in OSH, then why not go.

  • Did you know that Islam believes that Solomon, King David's son, was a prophet? As it is, and legend has it that Kyrgyzs in these parts, climbed this mountain and cried up there. Then there's an altar exactly in this place. For prayers. The path is steep but easy, and in the middle of the mountain has a small museum. It's nothing extraordinary, but a good story or story? Well, you decide!
