The Time Traveler – In Search of the Turks/Tonyukuk Inscriptions

In the second part of his Discovery – Special edition, “Time Traveller” brings to the screen the archaeological excavations around the Tonyukuk Inscriptions in Mongolia. Is Tonyukuk’s tomb the beginning of the shrine tradition in the Turks? The monumental granite stones, on which the word “Turk” was written for the first time, are still standing in the Mongolian steppe with many unknowns. Important scientific discoveries are being made during the excavations carried out by the Turkish Cooperation and Coordination Agency TIKA, around these inscribed stones and the Tonyukuk tomb complex, where the Göktürks wrote their history in the 8th century AD. The documentary prepared and presented by Ahmet Yeşiltepe also includes information about these discoveries and the museum to be built in the region.

The “Time Traveller” crosses the God Mountains… On the side of the Koksaal Mountains on the China-Kyrgyzstan border, he reaches Çolpan Ata, known as Göbeklitepe of the Ancient Turks, on the shore of Issyk-K Lake. He is making an extraordinary journey of discovery in the region, which has been used as a worship area for thousands of years. The ancient ruins were discovered and taken under protection during the Soviet period. The rock paintings, which the researchers describe as the “Turks’ Subconscious”, are the most important haunt of the Time Traveler in this episode. Also in the chapter, a nomadic Kazakh tribe in the Koksaal Mountains and the Muslim Chinese living around Lake Issyk Kul; The stories of Dungans and Kipchak Turkish tribes are on the screen.
