Explore More About Hissar Fortress:

The Hissar fortress is considered one of the most famous historical buildings in Central Asia, it was built 2500 years ago, and the main gate was built in the 16th century by order of the Bukhara Emir.

The fortress was built entirely of baked bricks and consisted of two cylindrical towers with gates and structures around the walls. It was guarded by state troops. Merchants with their caravans stopped here to summon up strength before a long journey and, of course, to trade. On the territory of the fortress, there were also educational institutions where the Koran was taught.

Big staircases and brick-lined terraces led to the main entrance. Unfortunately, they haven't survived. So hasn’t the entire palace building. The only remaining part is a monumental gate made from burned bricks with two cylindrical towers with an arrow-shaped arch between them; that was the way the majority of Bukhara gates were built in the 18th the 19th centuries. But even this fragment looks majestic and impressive.

The nature of the Gissar Valley is also unique. The valley is surrounded on all sides by mountain peaks, which makes the climate of Gissar sharply continental. It is quite cold here in winter and hot in summer. Such rivers as Shirkent, Kafirnigan, and Karatag flow through the valley.
