Hakimat-Termezi architectural complex — photo 1

Not far from Kala, next to old Termez, there is the Hakimat-Termezi architectural complex. This attraction has been formed over the centuries at holy burials. Visitors from all over the world go to the holy ashes. Founder of the Sufi order of Hakimi, one of the greatest representatives of Sufism in Central Asia, author of almost a hundred works by Abu Abdullah Muhammad bin Ali bini Hussein al-Hakimi Termezi, who received the title of Al-Hakimi, which means “wise”, was buried on this very spot. The huge dome of the complex is visible even from a long distance, and coming closer, you can see many small domes surrounding this place.

Nearby you could see the building that surrounded the multi-storey cemetery. The biggest room was the Halim Khona, or dining room. A small cemetery, the Mazars, is located on the southwest side. The Northern entrance is directed to Sheikhs’ living and rest quarters, a farmyard and an inconspicuous gallery. The entrance to a small mosque is made from the west. Originally the roof of the mosque was represented by four domes, two of which were later destroyed, and they were replaced by wooden beams.

In the distant part of the gallery, in a small mausoleum, Hakimaat-Termezi was located. The walls of the room were covered with ganche plaster, and where it collapsed, you could see amazing patterns in the form of ornamented Arabic knitting. In the middle, there was a tombstone, near it there were tugs with ornaments like an open palm and light cloths. By the 1950s, the ensemble has rightfully named one of the most complex among such structures due to a large number of buildings and structures.

The plaster layers were assembled in alternating structures, both raw and burnt brick masonry, with countless burials, ornaments, and ordinary ceramic decorations. Originally, there was a Buddhist temple here. In the 19th century on the site of the former temple, it was erected a building made of raw brick with a ceiling in the form of four domes. Presumably, this building was the khanaka where Hakimat-Termizi lived, worked, and taught his students and supporters of Sufism.
