About the City - Samarkand

Samarkand, Uzbek Samarqand, city in east-central Uzbekistan is one of the oldest cities of Central Asia. Known as Maracanda in the 4th century BCE, it was the capital of Sogdiana and was captured by Alexander the Great in 329 BCE. The city was later ruled by Central Asian Turks (6th century CE), the Arabs (8th century), the Sāmānids of Iran (9th–10th century), and various Turkic peoples (11th–13th century) before it was annexed by the Khwarezm-Shah dynasty (early 13th century) and destroyed by the Mongol conqueror Genghis Khan (1220). After it revolted against its Mongol rulers (1365), Samarkand became the metropolis of the empire of Timur (Tamerlane), who made the city the most important commercial and cultural hub in Central Asia. Samarkand was conquered by Uzbeks in 1500 and became part of the khanate of Bukhara. By the 18th century, it had declined, and from the 1720s to the 1770s it was desolated. Only after it became a provincial capital of the Russian Empire (1887) and a railroad centre did it recover economically. It was briefly (1924–36) the capital of the Uzbek Soviet Socialist Republic. Samarkand today consists of an old city dating from medieval times and a new section built after the Russian conquest of the area in the 19th century.
Unlike Bukhara, where walking from sight to sight is possible, Samarkand’s attractions are disseminated right across the city. Starting in the centre, the Mosque of Bibi Khanum dominates the skyline. It was once the biggest mosque in the world and has been partially rebuilt with the UNESCO help. Inside is a gigantic Koran stand, under which women longing for lots of children are reputed to crawl, seeking heavenly help.
Not far away from here, set back from the street, is the Registan Square. It is indescribably beautiful, a monument to majesty covered in majolica tiles of awesome complexity and craftsmanship. The square is made up of three buildings, one of which dates back to the early 15th century. High up on the facade of the Sher Lion Medressa are two giant lions – though the artists had never seen any before – flouting, in a very public way, Islamic doctrine on the depiction of live animals.
About 1km West is Gur Emir, the mausoleum of Tamerlane. The atmospheric interior is covered in golden tiles with inscriptions proclaiming the status of the occupant. The large slab of jade that marks the tyrant’s tomb is, by convention, simply a headstone, with the body buried in a separate chamber below.
Heading East you come to the Old Town with its tangled alleyways and hidden courtyards. Extending along the northern side of the Old Town is the Shahr-i-Zindah, one of the city’s main cemeteries. Standing on either side of a preserved medieval street here are some exquisite mausoleums, with majolica patterns and colours that are quite distinct from anything else in the country.
Travelling along the Tashkent road out of town you come to Samarkand’s best archaeological sight – Marakanda. This was the city that the Macedonians conquered more than 2000 years ago and is now an open archaeological dig, occasionally used as goat pasture by local shepherds. To the north lie the tomb of Daniel – he of the lion’s den – and, a little further away, the Ulughbek observatory, the remains of a massive Astro-labs used to determine the precise position of the stars.
The Russian part of town offers little to most visitors apart from a pretty 100-year-old cathedral built by Polish prisoners of War. On Sundays, there are services held here that make for an interesting and moving visit. Also on Sundays, it is possible to see Samarkand’s excellent bazaar, one of the best in Central Asia. The market is almost entirely for domestic consumption and those things that tourists might be tempted to buy – carpets for example – are of better quality elsewhere.
