Hissar Fortress

Hissar was the capital of the province of Eastern Bukhara and was in the hands of the Emir of the Emir of Ibrahimbek until 1924, when it was defeated by soldiers of the Red Army. The fortress overlooks the market square surrounded by a caravan-shed and two madrasahs, one of which is an ethnographic museum. Other unique historical finds near the Gissar Fortress are the Makhtum Azam Mausoleum, Masjidi-i-Sangin (“The Stone Mosque”), and the natural spring of Chashmai Mohiyon.
