In this study, the birth of Turkish art, the understanding of art and architecture of the pre-Islamic Turkish states in Central Asia have been the subject of research. While the semi-sedentary lifestyle continued to exist, the art and architecture, which developed during the Uyghur State, which also started a settled life, has been dealt with in a more comprehensive way. The art and architecture of this period are included with their semantic forms. During the Uyghur period, Turkish art was the first established art and had a great influence of the next period. In this context, it has a unique position in Turkish art history. In the last part of the study, the art and architecture of the Uyghur period within the Central Asian Turkish art was examined in terms of aesthetics. The art, architectural structures and Uyghur cities, which express microcosm, both plastic and semantic forms were discussed. The aim of the study is to create the infrastructure of Turkish art and architecture to see its reflections in the following periods and to observe the sustainability of architecture.
