Monument to Victory

Eternal flame

Eternal flame

♫♫ Soviet Choir - Victory♫♫

Three curved arcs represent a yurt with a sculpture of a woman, a mother with a cup in her hands, standing under tunduk near the eternal flame that awaits the return of her husband and sons from the war. The other two compositions: the sculptural image of two men carrying a disassembled machine gun, and a group of men with children, solemnly returning from the war. Along the edges of the stairs leading to the arch are 6 marble slabs. There are short inscriptions on them in Kyrgyz and Russian languages, the historical significance of the victory of the Soviet people in the Great Patriotic War, the list of heroes of the Soviet Union and complete chevaliers of the Order of Glory of three classes - people of Kyrgyzstan, on the participation of the Communists and Komsomol members of the republic in the war, about the exploits of people in the rear
