Bishkek is an attractive city with beautiful parks and very interesting architecture. The people tend to be very friendly, and the prices are, by American standards, agreeably low. I loved my time in Bishkek and plan to go again.

Kurmanjan Datka lived between 1811-1907, and was a famous leader for many reasons. She married her husband, who was the leader of Kyrygzstan in 1832 This marriage was a brave step for Kurmanjan, as her family had already promised her to another suitor, in an arranged marriage, which was Kyrygz tradition.She is seen as a hero and role model to many Kyrygz women due to her bravery in marrying for love against her family's wishes.

When her husband died, she became the leader of Kyrygzstan. Her sons fought alongside her against Russian annexation, but she eventually surrendered the country to save her people in 1876.Two of her sons were charged by the Russians with illegal activities, and she had to attend the public execution of one of them. Her grandsons were also charged and the boys sent to hard labour in Siberia. Through all this hardship she remained the de facto head of state, although the Russians had the real power.

Only one photo was taken of her in 1906, just a year before her death. This picture formed the basis for many statues, monuments and other illustrations throughout Kyrygzstan. All major cities in the country will have a monument to her.The 50 som bank note has a picture of her. Her life was immortalized in a movie in 2014, titled "Queen of the Mountains". The statue was placed here in 2004, and is accessible 24 hours per day, and free to visit.

One of few kyrgyz female politicians and decision makers back in the day. Cool statue in a very green and tranquil park in the middle of the city.

She is a major historical figure in Kyrgyz history. I wasn't aware of it until my tour guide mentioned it to me. The monument is nicely done, and what better way to showcase it than at beautiful Oak Park.

Another important figure in Kyrgyz history taking a prominent position in this part of Bishkek. The figure is depicted in traditional attire and standing (there is a equestrian statue of her in Osh) and carved very well. The statue is set in a very nice colourful surrounding befitting the person of Kurmanjan.
