Balbal, the standing stone made on behalf of the enemies whom they were killed by Hereos or Khans to serve them in eternal world, is the reminding stone with or without inscriptions according to the burial traditions of Gokturks & Huns. If they could not find any stone to make Balbal, They planted the wood Balbal as well. Altough the word, “ Balbal “, mentioned in Orkhon inscriptions dated 732 A.D., it is proven that it had even been used in 5000 B.C. in central Asia by Turkish tribes. Planting the balbal belief shows that ancient Turks believed in the existence of life after death and when a human died, he emigrated to eternal world so he was buried with his horse, his weapons, his goods in need of necessity after resurrected by sky god. The Khans and famous hereos also would need some servants in eternal world therefore their enemies whom they killed in the present world could entertain & serve to them. On the other hand, Balbal is the reminding stone in some cases in order to show the burial place of dead person. The balbal can contain some inscriptions or sculpted statues showing the importance or degree of the buried person. If the Balbal contains sculpted sword that means the person was hero during his life and if the Balbal contains a glass of oath in his hands means that the person was a Khan or a ruler of a tribe. Both figures are the symbols of heroism, courage and patriotism of Shamnism belief practised in central Asia. Those stones can be seen in a large area from Mongolia to Russian steppes dating back 6th century B.C. The oldest Balbal was found in Kirghizistan between Şatı and Bolak villages and those balbals have been excavated that they are on display in the museum of Black-Batkak museum today. Besides, a lot of balbals were found some time ago in Tokmak city of Kirghizistan on the bank of river tokmak showing the ancient Turks were nomadic warriors. About two hundred Balbals also have been found recently in Tuva Turk autonomous region of Russian federation. A single balbal in the countryside at the footsteps of the the mountain in the region called Bijiktigha is said to be mark of Gengiz Khan’s treasure according to some researchers. In short planting balbal is the burial tradition of ancient Turks. When the Turks decided to emigrate from central Asia to the different parts of the world because of the draught & in need of conquest request, they have taken their burial traditons wherever they were settled down. They came along with Arabic forces in Khorasan in 7th-8th centuries A.D. and majority of Turkish troops began accepting Moslem faith by sword effect or by their own will. They also imposed their burial traditions which have been going on for many centuries to the İslamic world later and they continued to plant Balbal stones with some chances that we call gravestones today. Gravestones are the adapted form of ancient Balbals and the shrines are the adopted form of Korgans-underground mounds- according to moslem faiths by the Turkish people.
