Yurta - style of life
. Yurta for the Kyrgyz is more
than merely a comfortable dwelling. It was developed thousands
of years ago. Today it's hard to say which of the nomadic tribes in
the ancient history gave rise to the idea of this unique residential structure.
Nowadays it remains part and parcel of the Kyrgyz chaban or shepherd. Although
modern times have altered the appearance of big and small villages in outlying
regions, one cannot even imagine that this ingenious creation of early architecture
might sink in oblivion in our days.
