Dalverzintepa Settlement

Tourism in Uzbekistan is diverse, in the Shurchinsky district is the ancient settlement of Dalverzintepa. For quite some time, archaeologists have been passionate about this place. Excavations were begun in the 30s of the last century. According to single artifacts, it was found that the ancient settlement existed until the 6th century. In fact, it is much older. Once it was an important strategic city, the center of the region. Some fragments allow us to attribute it to the Kushan period, which existed from the 1st century BC until the 6-7th centuries.

The decline of the Kushan kingdom was reflected in Dalverzintep. The city began to revive, but the Arab conquests finally destroyed it. The ancient period contributed to the development of the city. Here agriculture was developed, the administrative division of the city. There was also its own city guard, consisting of warriors, and the city nobility, a tax collection system. It was the cultural center of the region. The conquest period of Macedon was famous for the fact that after the conquest in the city reconstruction and development began. But he was not destined to resist the Arab army.

Today, Dalverzintepa is a small outline of buildings on earth that have been exposed due to the painstaking work of archaeologists. On them you can trace the structure of the city. Once, the main part was surrounded by a moat that protected the city from uninvited guests.

Inside the defensive structure, you can see fragments of the temple, furnaces and elements of the winery, an integral structure of the Roman conquerors.

On the outer side of Vyshhorod (as it was decided to call the main part of the city on a hill) there was a Buddhist temple, such conclusions were drawn after the discovery of Buddha figures and fragments of heroes of Buddhist mythology. This is the oldest Buddhist building found in Uzbekistan. Sculptures, drawings, jewelry were also discovered. Even a figure of a musician with a harp in his hands was found.

All these findings reinforced the theory that the cultural development of the city was very high.

Of particular interest to tourists can be the legends told by local residents. They are involved in love, and cunning, and cunning, and witchcraft. But all the legends come down to how the Arabs conquered this city. But the fact of finding 36 kilograms of gold jewelry in this place haunts not only the guests, but also the local population to this day.
