After the boom, Malik station

Release time:


Although the term is rarely used in our daily life,on the Silk Road,it became an important hub connecting each city,not only for the rest and lodging of the coming and going merchants,but also,most of all,for the trading of goods.So,on the route from Samarkand to Bukhara,there were more than two dozen post stations(one every 20 to 22 kilometers on average)on the ancient Silk Road,built at different times,mostly during the 10th to 17th centuries,but only three sites have been discovered and preserved today.
In the Gobi desert,180 kilometers west of Samarkand,a walled site is suddenly discovered at Malik,which is part of the Navawai district of Samarkand.Macro station.Named after the place by investment builder station was built in the 11th century,in the era of timur going through the silk road on the most prosperous era,and now,only a site for people in the desert by recording and imagination to restore the signal model of building up a part of the site,to mark where is the merchant's inn,where is a bath hall,is a trade hall...Across the road from the site was a domed brick building that served as the station's water source for people and animals.There is still plenty of water,but no one takes water from the ruined post any more.
Although today the site is separated by a road north and south,in history the station was an integrated area.It is only the necessity of modern road discovery that makes the road from Samarkand to Bukhara pass through the"post station",a situation which,for Abdul,a specialist in historical preservation,is a matter of great regret.
Mr.Abdul introduced Malik.Many coins,POTS and other cultural relics unearthed at the site of Hongyi Station(Nayuyi area)can be concluded to be from China,and are now stored in the Tashkent Historical Museum.The site of the post is almost open to visitors,as there is no one to look after it,but it is nominally under the control of the National Institute of History.
