The region then became a part of the Kushan Empire. In the early medieval period, it was the Turks who first made their mark in this region. Nomadic tribal group of G’kt’rks established the first Turkic state in 552 AD. From the group, Buddhist Uyghur Empire emerged out of the region. After the disintegration of the Empire, branches of it migrated to surrounding areas to form individual settlements. Some of these groups formed a federation with the Muslim institutions that was called Kara-Khanlik. They settled in the region of Kyrgyzstan cities like ancient Balasagun flourished as a economic and cultural center in Central Asia. Following the Mongol invasion in the 13th Century, the territories of Kyrgyzstan got devastated and people lost their independence and came under Mongol Khanates of Golden Horde, Chagatai Khanate, and Oirats.
