Oh, the Star of the East, beautiful Tashkent! Whitened by grayness for more than two millennia, you have repeatedly collapsed and resurrected from the ashes, once again becoming the abode of peace and goodness. Your hot heart warms everyone who steps on your land, permeated like arteries, by the waters of the gray Anhor, the canals Boz-su and Burdjar. Like a generous Eastern Emir, you welcome guests with exquisite food and luxury, celebrations, attractions and music. Being the capital of Uzbekistan, Tashkent, you embodied the elegance of the distant overseas lands and did not waste the special charm of the East given to you at birth.

History of Tashkent

You charm the wanderers treading on your warm lands, not only by your beautiful outlook but also by the history of the region, which is full of legends. You revealed the mystery of your appearance to the world only in 2007 when the Zoroastrian temple was found in the Ming Urik hill fort, where in the 2-1-st centuries B.C. your residents addressed their prayers to the God of the Sun.

You changed a few names, beautiful city:

  • “Chach” during the Kangju dynasty from the Celestial Empire in the 2-1-st centuries B.C. and under the Sassanids, during the Turkic Kaganate, of which you, the ancient city, became a part in the 6th century A.D.;
  • “Shash” two centuries later under the Arabs;
  • “Tashkent” since the 11th As the legend says, your name sounds in translation not just as “The Stone City”, but “The City of the Precious Stone”: in one of the spurs of the Tien Shan that picturesquely stretches around you, Tashkent, in those distant times they were mining turquoise – the favorite stone of Amir Timur.

After Genghis Khan’s destruction, you will restore your former beauty and grandeur only during the reign of Tamerlane – in the 14-15-th centuries.

Oh, a lighthouse in the sands of Central Asia for wandering caravans, you continued to bloom even after Tamerlane: under the Sheibanids and during the Kokand rule. And later, after becoming a part of the Russian Empire in 1865, you became the main city of the Syrdarya region and Turkestan Governorate General, becoming the capital of our country only in 1930 and remaining to this day. Your big heart warmed up thousands of orphans from different republics during World War II. Good came back to you in 1966, when a terrible earthquake wanted to wipe your beautiful features off the face of the earth. But the people who heard about your generosity kept it from happening, preserved and multiplied your beauty.
