Explore More About Kulob City:

Kulob (which means swampy place or rushes and has also been called Kulab or Kulyab), is a city in eastern Kulob district, Khatlon Province, Tajikistan. Located 203 km southeast of the capital Dushanbe on the Yakhsu River (a tributary of the Panj) at 580 m above sea level; it is one of the largest cities in the country (population of 82,000).

The town has been difficult to reach and was isolated for decades as a result of its being bordered by Afghanistan on the south and east (along the Pyanj River), and the Pamir Mountains to the north; this has ended recently with the extension of roads north and westward through the Pamirs to Dushanbe, and its connection by rail to Dushanbe via Qurganteppa.

The province is naturally defined by the river Panj (upper Amu-Darya) and the Hazrat-e Shah range in the east, offshoots of Tajikistan's central mountains in the north, the Teraklitag and Karatag ranges in the west, and again the Panj in the south, to which flows southward the Kizilsu (Sorkab), the main river of the region. The area is a relatively conservative and traditional dress and norms predominate. Kulob is the birthplace of the current President of Tajikistan, Emomali Rahmonov, Canadian media entrepreneur Moses Znaimer, and popular Tajik singer Manija Dawlatov.

As part of the Khanate of Bukhara since the 16thcentury (the Emirate of Bukhara since the 18thcentury), the city changed its name from Khatlon to Kulob in 1750. In 1921, after the fall of the Bukhara Emirate, Soviet rule was established in Kulob and the city became an industrial center during the Soviet era. In September 2006 Kulob celebrated its 2700th anniversary.
