Sacred Geography of Kyrgyzstan


The Sacred Geography of Kyrgyzstan is a representation of both natural and cultural phenomena. This is a network of sacred sites – springs, caves, mountains, mausoleums, lakes, tombs and trees – that people visit as pilgrims. An essential part of any pilgrimage practice is performance of rituals and ceremonies, which turns territories covered by sacred sites into a ritualized land.
