The Sulayman-Too forms the backdrop to the city of Osh. The sacred Tulayman-Too or Tahti-Suleiman ("Throne of Sulayman") is named in honour of the legendary bible king Solomon and prophet in the Qur'an. The mountain with its five peaks contains a grave, that supposedly marks the grave of Sulayman.

At the foot of the mountain are located the most outstanding mosques of the city Osh (the mausoleum Asaf-ibn-Burkhia (XI -XVIII), the mosque Ravat – Abdullakhan (XVII – XVIII), and the mosque Muhammad Yusuf Baikhozhi- Oghli (1909)).

The Sulayman-Too is an UNESCO Heritage site since 1997.
