The last remaining structure of the ancient city of Balasagun, Burana Tower offers a glimpse at a long-lost civilization. The tower was constructed between the 10th and 11th centuries and partially destroyed during an earthquake in the 16th century. Its diminished 25 m (82 ft) height can still be scaled by climbing an internal spiral staircase, leading to a panoramic viewing point.

Beautiful landmark which has a museum and you can see the tombs as well. By the way, you don’t have to buy the combo entrance + museum ticket. You can just buy the entrance which is much cheaper than the combo. At first they tried to oversell us the combo but thankfully we were aware that you could buy the entrance only.
The tower is impressive at 24m tall. Nearby is a collection of stone figures and tools, explanations of the tower and souvenir shop. Cost 80 KGS per person to enter. Recommend a short stop if you're in the neighborhood, but probably not worth a big detour.
