Brief information about Termez:
The southernmost city of Uzbekistan, located on the right bank of the Amu Darya - Termez, is located in the subtropical climatic zone and is one of the hottest cities in the world.
For its almost 3000-year history, this city was repeatedly destroyed and reborn again. After the conquest of Alexander the Great, the city was called Demetris in honor of the ruler of the Greco-Bactrian kingdom of Demetrius.
Termez is rich in monuments of Buddhist, Zoroastrian and Muslim history. Of course, everyone knows what role this frontier outpost played in the last decades of the existence of the Soviet Union.
The main attractions of Termez:
A curious tourist who is going to visit Termez probably already knows about its main attractions: the architectural ensemble of Hakim-at-Termezi of the 12th century, the Sultan Saodat memorial and cult complex, the 6th century Khanaka Kyrk-Kyz, the Fayaztepa Buddhist temple complex and the Djarkurgan minaret.
ARCHITECTURAL ENSEMBLE OF HAKIM-AT-TERMEZI. This unusual in its beauty monument was created by an unknown architect in the IX century. Abu-Abdallah-Muhammad bin-Ali bin-Hussein rests under artfully decorated vaults. He was considered the patron of the city and paid homage on equal terms with the saints. The ensemble includes a mausoleum and a memorial mosque attached later. In these places it is widely believed that Genghis Khan (Chingizkhan) was so impressed by the modesty and at the same time the greatness of this monument that he ordered to leave it unscathed.
MEMORIAL-CULTURAL COMPLEX SULTAN SAODAT. The dynasty crypt of the Seyid, which eventually evolved into a whole ensemble with marvelously decorated mosques, seemingly weightless and floating in the air.
KHANAKA KYRK-KYZ OR "THE FORTY GIRLS". It's the unique monument of ancient architecture, which was built in the VI century – like the tribute for female warriors, who died here. The regular army could not cope with the frequent raids of nomads, so women's squads emerged to defend the city.
FAYAZTEPA BUDDHIST TEMPLE COMPLEX. Built in the I-III centuries AD, the complex consists of nineteen separate rooms connected by wide ceilings. Here archaeologists have found many figures of deities, worshipers, ordinary people performing rituals. On the territory of the complex there is a well-preserved statue of the Buddha meditating in the corresponding pose. Scientists came to the conclusion that the buildings served as a temple and a monastery.
