Central Asia is located in the middle of the Eurasian Continent and in the center of the Silk Road. Through the Silk Road, various religions as well as goods were transmitted to the East and the West. Based on this background, in Central Asia, cultures of the East and the West were exchanged, and a unique culture was born. In this lesson, we will focus on the Ak-Beshim (Suyab) archaeological site located in the Republic of Kyrgyz in the central part of Central Asia and learn about the history and culture of that era.
