Samarkand (Part I)

Samarkand photos compiled with Naufal's song in the background. It came to my mind after I copied Samarkand photos from the world networking. I must admit I haven't get written or any kind of permission from the authors of the photos, so please don't get angry if you are the author of any of the seen photos. I tell, thank you on behalf of my city, Samarkand.

    Samarkand is my hometown. I have seen foreigners crying touched by the beauty and spirituality of its medieval architecture. It carries wisdom and happiness. It has a very rich history, has always been cosmopolitan, it’s the city of the world and not of one nation. As for Alisher Navoi, he wrote in Farsi and in old Turkic, which later became Uzbek. In fact, Alisher Navoi was the one who proved that the language was beautiful and sufficiently developed to be the language for high poetry.

    Currently, they inhabit the upper reaches of the Zarafshan, the Samarqand region, the Kuhistan valleys, the slopes of the Quqand mountains, Namangan, Margilan, and parts of the Andijan region of Ferghana. They also live in the mountains of Nurata and in the regions of Jizzakh and Katta-Kurgan. The Chinese recognize the inhabitants of the Transcaspia-Khiva, Ferghana, and Sughd-as speakers of Tajiki («tiagi» in their language)

    N. I. Virskii’s data also support Kastanko’s statement. His sociological table, dealing with the Zarafshan rural district, provides the population for Samarqand at 35,326 (33,622 Tajiks), in 1876. The remaining population consists of Persians, Indians, Central Asian Jews, and Uzbeks. The first general Russian census of 1897, too, indicates that the Tajiks were predominant in the Samarqand region (60. 58% men 66. 58% women), Uzbeks (13. 59% men, 13. 55% women)

    Analyzing the formation of the cities of Central Asia, Zarubin states, «In 1915, the Tajik population of the heavily populated city of Samarqand was 59,991 and the Uzbek population was 819, Which is only 1% uzbaks used to lived up there. For instance, L. F. Kastanko’s conclusion, presented by Zarubin, indicates that, «At the end of the past century the main population of Samarqand was Tajik.»

    @nonvoy Where did you get that Aryans came from Eastern Europe? Do you sell what you smoke? The only thing i know who migrate from Eastern Europe is gypses. LoL.

    Even Europeans don’t claim that, how can you claim this BS? Watch Discover or National Geographic channels about history — i tend to trust them more than some young punks with milk on their lips screaming that they know history. Go read your books.
