Petroglyph Gallery Cholpon-Ata

According to the researchers, near the town of Cholpon-Ata is situated a place where ancient nomads worshiped the heavenly bodies and performed religious rituals. Here you can see an exhibition of more than 5000 stones reaching from 30 cm to 3 m in height.

They are engraved with petroglyphs. The age of some "paintings" is up to 4000 years old. Petroglyphs reveal the dynamics of life and experience of ancient people,their daily activities, moments of hunting, war, triumph and sacrifice.

The Gallery of petroglyphs is also named the 'Stone Garden'.
