Hissar Historical Reserve

Located 30 km from Dushanbe (4-5 km from Hissar settlement) is one of the most important landmarks of Tajikistan - Hissar History and Culture Reserve. This name is related to archeological and architectural monuments of different ages found on its 86-hectare territory. The reserve location - Hissar Valley - is a vast intermountain hollow with the rivers Kafirnigan, Karatag, and Shirkent. People inhabited this place in the Stone Age, in the 4th-3rd millennia B.C.

Later the valley territory was a part of Bactria, and then of Greek-Bactrian and Kushan states. This fact is proved by the remains of ancient settlements found by archeologists. However, today only orbicular mounds called "tepa” - "a hill" - have survived. In the Middle, Ages Hissar was known for its crafts and markets. In the 18th - 19th centuries, it was known as Hissar province - one of 28 domains of the Bukhara Emirate. Hissar fortress which has survived since those times is considered the most famous landmark of the reserve.
