Tash-Rabat – a unique architectural monument is located in a pretty picturesque gorge Kara-Koyun Naryn region, which is 110 km south of the city of Naryn, at an altitude of 3200 m above sea level. Tash-Rabat is one of the main architectural sights of Kyrgyzstan, which dates back to the 15th century. In the Middle Ages on the Great Silk Road, the fortress Tash-Rabat served as a caravanserai, that is, an inn for merchants and travelers. Tash-Rabat was on the trade route, which in those distant times connected the Chui and Ferghana Valley with Kashgar. For hunters and pastoralists, this stone building was an unusual structure, and it was associated with ancient legends. The scientists actively engaged in the research of Tash-Rabat in the late 19th and early 20th centuries. Scientists have differently defined the cultural component of this complex and its purpose. Some of them believed that the construction of Tash-Rabat refers to the era of the late Middle Ages. Others said it was the ruins of a Christian Nestorian monastery, which was built in the 10th-11th century. In the 1980s, the restoration of this cultural monument, which has an important historical value for the country, was carried out. After the restoration it is visited by tourists from different countries. The history of the construction of Tash-Rabat is contradictory. According to the documents, he was ordered to build the local ruler Muhammad Khan. But old-timers tell another story: “Tash-Rabat was built by father and son. And almost at the very completion of construction, when it was necessary to put the last stone on the dome, a caravan appeared on the horizon. The son left the job, and went to see who was going there. Father told him to finish the job first. But he did not listen, he left and did not return. It turned out that along with the caravan was traveling a young beautiful girl. Tash-Rabat has been without a roof ever since. ” Such an unusual architectural monument is in the Naryn region. From Tash-Rabat it is possible to make a fascinating passage through the pass to the beautiful high-mountain lake Chatyr-Kul.
