The place is nearby the US, Chinese and Kazakh embassies. If you are around, you can stop by for a visit. There is a big yurt inside as well as some remnants of the kyrgyz culture. Even though the place looks like it has been forgotten, it is a popular visit for young couples on their wedding day.

In 1995 this place was very nice with Big Yurt. Where you could visit with your friends. Nowadays monuments need to be rennovated.

This museum was about as dry as it gets for me. Lots of anthropological displays of traditional clothing.

Manas is a very important for Kyrgyz people so for me as well for a Turk. But this area does not speak to Turkish or any people whos does not speak Russian. There is no information or guide even in English. I do not recommend any person who does not speak Russian to go there.
