Short excursus through mysterious places of Uzbekistan

Almost all of us love the legends, secrets, mystery and a little adventure. But few people think about the fact that the most interesting is happening around us.

One has only to look at Uzbekistan under a little different angle and an elevated magic carpet of mystery will show you much unforgettable and interesting.

Samarkand, Uzbekistan

Everyone knows about majestic Samarkand, Bukhara and Khiva, but few know about mystical Surkhandarya, where in spite of all the laws of physics, the ball thrown from the mountain is rolling up; few people heard about burning water, forgotten canyons and dinosaur tracks on the Hissar; and even fewer people are informed about that how petroglyphs, depicting the astronauts and flying saucers appeared in the canyon Sarmysh Sai.

And what about the lake Badak. The lake is a gem of Ugam-Chatkal National Park. It is located at an altitude of 1,700 m. above sea level. The name Badak is of Turkic origin, which means "broad." The lake stretches from East to West more than a kilometer, in width it reaches more than 200 meters, the maximum depth is 23.2 m.

It has an interesting feature of changing color depending on the time of day: in early morning it is blue-green, later at noon it becomes bluish, at sunset it becomes silvery.

Near the Badak one can find picturesque small creeks, next to which there are a lot of shady places to relax.

The mysterious mosque "Deggaron", which is located in the village Khazora of Navoi region, is worth telling about. The mosque is a masterpiece of ancient architecture of Uzbekistan. It is one of the most remarkable surviving monuments of the Middle Ages, which in 1934 was opened by the Hermitage archaeological expedition led by L.Yu.Yakubovsky.

Mosque "Deggaron"

The mosque is interesting as a rare example of the ancient building in which clay, relatively thin walls without reinforcement amazingly keep on itself a huge weight of many-domes roof completely, along with the domes of brick lined. Originality and a number of interesting features of Deggaron has been attracting the attention of a wide circle of scientists, specialists and historians, archaeologists, art historians and architects.

Based on the features and signs of the construction, scientists suggested that the age of Deggaron is not less than Ismail Samanid Mausoleum. However, there are other dates. Some experts attribute this monument to the XI century.

Ismail Samanid Mausoleum

In the west wall of the mosque the hilly land is literally bustled with shards of ceramic pots. It seems that once there was a settlement of potters. Maybe hereof this is the name of the mosque. Deggaron is translated as "boilermaker"or "potters".

Long ago someone suggested that Deggaron before becoming a mosque could be a Nestorian (Early-Christian) church. However, the unusual mysterious domes and other architectural features, together with the name of the mosque and traces of ancient settlements of potters, incline us to believe that originally Deggaron was a Buddhist or Zoroastrian temple. And then for a long time it had been the mosque.
