Day 02 Friday: Ferghana/Tashkent
Continue with the tour of this magnificent valley also known as the heartland of Uzbekistan. The tour includes visits to:
Marghilan (1st century BC). Marghilan’s best-known son is Zaheruddin Mohammad Babur, the founder of India’s Moghul Empire in the 16th century.
As legend says the name of Marghilan is linked with the invasion of Alexander the Great to Central Asia in the 4th century BC Alexander the Great had passed the way from Khojand to Uzghen and back. During that campaign he visited twice the settlement that was long after named Marghilan. Local people met Alexander with bread and chicken. He liked the meal and asked about it. He received a reply: “Murginon” which meant “chicken and bread”. From that memorable day the town was named as “Marghilan”.
Since old days Marghilan has been famous for its wonderful and fine silk. Via the Great Silk Road traders brought Margilanian silk to Baghdad, Cairo and Athens.
Nowadays the population of Marghilan is 165,000 people with the territory of 50 square km.
Marghilan is the silk production center of Uzbekistan.
The souvenir factory “Yodgorlik” still is the only one in Central Asia where original handmade methods of silk production have remained. Silk fabric manufactured here is considered as one of the best in the international market.
Andijan is situated in the Southeast of the Ferghana Valley and is surrounded by high mountains and hills.
The history of the city goes back to the 9th century AD. In ancient times the Great Silk Road passed through this town, which was known as the eastern gate of the Ferghana Valley. In the 10th century Andijan was the part of the Samanids Empire. In 1483 Zaheruddin Babur was born here, and Andijan became the capital of the Ferghana State and its major Silk Road trading center. Later Babur had to go to Afghanistan and he ruled Kabul for two decades, then in 1526 he marched into Delhi and founded the Moghul Empire in India. The dynasty of the Babur's had ruled India for more than 300 years.
The Babur Literary Museum - is situated behind the bazaar, occupying the site of the royal apartments, where Babur lived and studied in Ark-Ic_hi, the town’s citadel that exists no more.
Juma Mosque & Madrasah - built in the 19th century, is said to be the only building to survive the 1902 earthquake. It is also a regional museum with historical exhibits on display.
