I'd like to remind that the area of Osh/Uzgen really is an ancient settled area, it looks amazing. I think it was a major city of capitol of the Karakhanids, the first large powerfull Turko-Muslim state, stretching all across Central Asia. Their literature, culture and architecture flourished. During this time, Kashgari Mahmud, Yusuf Has Hajib and others wrote the early great Turkic works. They built CaravanSarays, new original architectural styles in their mausoleums, towers, civic buildings, mosques. You can see the influence of the Nomadic Turkic style being incorporated into sedentry architectural styles in their complexes.

Osh-Uzgen Kirgizistan has some of the earliest Turkic examples of Turko-Islamic architecture, plus pre-Islamic monuments. There were recently many statues and ruins found in that area, more and more keeps being uncovered. Sadly alot was forgotten and burned after the Mongols torched the area.

However, alot remains, it seems after areas were depopulated their buildings remained but people had fled and in time it became a ghost town.

There's alot of history in that area, hopefully more archeaologists will conduct studies there.

Kirgiz Village in Turkey.
 
Kirgiz of Pamir had been settled in Turkey in 1982 by the President Kenan Evren. The village Ulupamir is in Van-Erciş i think they are 2000 or something nowa days. They wrote letters to the goverments of Turkey and USA when they were at exile in Afghanistan and they choose Turkey because of cultural and ethnic reasons.
 
You can watch the documentary film "37 uses for a dead sheep - the story of the Pamir Kirghiz" for more information.
 
Here is some pictures.
