How Much Do You Know About Turkic Mythology?

Although Turkic mythology is not as well known as Greek and Nordic mythologies, it actually has a very interesting content.

The inadequacy of written sources and the spread of Turkish cultural geography over a wide area are the two biggest problems in Turkic mythology studies. However, we know a lot thanks to the Orkhon and Yenisey Inscriptions, folk tales, epics, prayers and laments that have survived thanks to the Shaman and Tengrist Turkic communities.
