Regarding the social structure and cultural values, a rapid change and development process is being experienced in the geography of the Turkish nations within the last century. From this point of view, Kyrgyzistan constitutes a model that is worth being researched. The changes and developments realized in the cultural domain are being considered on various platforms, and research and surveys are being carried out in this field. The target of all these studies is to contribute to the interpretation of this cultural development process. In relation to this work, funeral, burial and condolence and mourning rituals and traditions starting from the death and continuing during one year following the burial, the traditions regarding the 3, 7, 40 days following the burial constitute the topics of these studies.
