century the epic was recorded by Soviet researchers. The epic tells us about more than 600 heroes and about 800 toponymy phrases are met. The epic is the biggest in the whole world and is considered to be the art of literary heritage that is 20 times bigger than "Iliad" and "Odyssey" of the great Gomer. It is 5 times bigger that Persian epic "Shahname" and twice bigger than Ancient Indian epic "Mahabharata". Up to today epic Manas estimates about 1020 years of its existence.
