Our national values provoke pride and inspire great respect in the revival of the new epoch of the powerful state. One of these values, which have enhanced the international prestige of our people, is brave, faithful and clever alabays.

The Turkmen alabay was chosen the official mascot of the V Asian Indoor and Martial Arts Games, held in our country in 2017 to play an important role in the recognition of Turkmenistan as a sports power. This fact demonstrated great respect of the Turkmen people for alabays. The 15-metre Monument of Turkmen Alabay in one of the most beautiful parts of our white-marble capital is another evidence of high esteem for alabays.
