This central square can be quite hot in the mid day of summer and is without much shade. Good place to capture locals walking pass this monument and people gather at the fountains to let their children play with the water.

You can't avoid this monument that stands on the main square in front of the History Museum. I believe this monument replaced the statue of Lenin. On weekend evenings this place is full of families with children spending their leisure time.

This is located in the center of Bishkek near the presidential palace and the Parliament building. The monument itself is similar to many other monuments you have seen in the world, but Manas is considered the national hero in Kyrgyzstan.

Everywhere you go in Kyrgyzstan you will come across Manas the Great, the national hero. Lots of locals around his statue in Ala Too Square - may be good for a selfie.

Although this only requires a few minutes, I think it's important not only to see the monument, but to understand who Manas was, considering how important he is to Kyrgyz history.
