Power of great love

Everyone knows the story of tragic love of Kozy – Korpesh and Bayan - Sulu since childhood.

Parents promised to make them married and betrothed long before the children were born. But the treacherous Karabai, Bayan’s father, changes plans and promises to give his daughter to Kodar, who becomes a barrier between the two lovers. In this eternal triangle Kozy was killed first.

Saddened Bayan wants to revenge the murderer and decides to make a trick. She promises to marry Kodar, if he digs a well with spring water for her. Kodar starts to work, Bayan "helps" him- holding the girl's hair Kodar digs the well. Bayan suddenly cuts off her braids, Kodar falls in the abyss and dies.

Without her beloved, on his grave the heroine of the legend daggered herself.

The names of Kozy - Korpesh and the beauty Bayan - Sulu are inseparable for fifteen centuries and relevant to the present day, representing great love and true relationship.

April 15 is a special holiday in Kazakhstan dedicated to the heroes of love. In honor of this celebration the romantic competition "Kozy - Korpesh" is held in the university hall where seven brave young people will fight for the heart of a beautiful girl.
