Among them was widespread shamanizm. On inhabitants of agricultural areas the big influence was rendered by religious traditions zoroastrizma, the Buddhism, early Christianity and other beliefs. In VII - VIII centuries the region has been won by Arabs, and Islam became dominating religion of local population. Modern kyrgyzy, Uzbeks, Tadjiks and some other nationalities of Kyrgyzstan in overwhelming majority - Moslems-sunnity hani-fitskogo sense. Russian, Ukrainians, Byelorussians-orthodox. Germans, the Baltic people - Lutherans.
The national culture kyrgyzov was based on ancient nomadic tradition of the people of the Central Asia. The life of nomads-cattlemen is connected with constant movement to new pastures. Unlike the Kazakhs wandering on steppes, kyrgyzy wandered in mountains: in the winter cattle contained in mountain valleys, and in the summer - on slopes of mountains. Since spring to the late fall kyrgyzy small family groups moved on enormous spaces of high-mountainous pastures, and in a cold season these groups gathered in valleys and lived on time parking - in ailah.
