Abstract

The article analyzes the results of a study of the fortress of Ordu-Balyk that was the citadel of Uygur state capital in Central Asia. There was made an assumption that Uyghurs could build their fortresses with the help of Sogdian architects and craftsmen. The article describes the main design features of defense constructions of this fortress. A certain complexity of the defense constructions of Ordu-Balyk was indicated in comparison with other Uyghur fortresses studied by archaeologists in previous decades on the territory of Mongolia and Tuva. Despite the noted complexity of the fortifi cations of the Ordu-Balyk fortress, the Uyghur troops that defended it were not able to confront the Yenisei Kyrgyz forces successfully. The Uyghurs and other tribes were forced to leave the territory of Mongolia and tried to ask the rulers of the Chinese Tang Empire for help
