Masterclass at Kyzyl - Tuu

Issyk-Kul is an endorheic lake in the northern Tian Shan mountains in eastern Kyrgyzstan. It is the seventh deepest lake in the world, the tenth largest lake in the world by volume, and the second largest saline lake after the Caspian Sea.

Silk Road Caravans used to stop here to rest as the center of the Balasagun city, which was established by the Karakhanids at the end of the 9th century.

The center brings together the history and spiritual heritage of different cultures and nationalities of the world. The ideological concept of the cultural center is striking in its depth: the complex of five white chapels, located exactly the same distance from each other. The only external difference between the chapels – the symbols of different world religions. “Rukh Ordo” is famous not only for its unusual architectural monuments but also because of the most beautiful pier on the lake.
