Burana Tower was built in 11 century in the centre of Balasagun - a thriving city on the Great Silk Road. Many traders used to come to that place to exchange their goods and stay for a night. At that time Tower was 45 meters high but because of the earthquake in 15 century part of it fell down. People used the tower as a sign for travelers and traders, as a watching tower and as a place to call local people to pray. After the earthquake in the 15 century people were scared to stay in the city. They thought that God cursed them. That is way they left the city in a hurry and did not have the majority of their belongings. Our archeologist found many artifacts there and part of them was taken to Russia, but you can see some of them in a local museum.
