Bukhara is an ancient oasis city along the fabled silk road and it is said that the sun shines up from the city for it is so noble. For centuries it was a centre of trade and Islam, earning the title Bukhoro-i-Sharif ("Noble Bukhara") among Muslims (one of the seven holy cities of Islam). The city itself boasts impressive architecture and history. It is one of the few places in Central Asia where one can feel the heartbeat of Central Asia. Most of the city remains intact and is occupied by inhabitants who have lived there for generations upon generations. The city was founded in the 1st century AD. By the time of it's capture by Arabs in the early 8th century Bukhara had become an important trade and cultural center. It was a leading center of Islamic learning under the Arabs and the Persian Samanid dynasty, which held the city in the 9th and 10th centuries. It later was captured successively by the Qarakhanids and Tatars, and in 1555 it became the capital of an Uzbek emirate. The emirate was conquered in 1866 by Russia, which held it as a protectorate from 1868 to 1920; then the emir was removed, and the city was made the capital of the Bukhara People's Soviet Republic. From 1924 to 1991 the city was incorporated into the Uzbek Soviet Socialist Republic (SSR). Uzbekistan became an independent republic in 1991. Population is about 250,000.

Most impressive to the foreigner are the buildings which date to the 9th-10th centuries, and the overall atmosphere. Unfortunately Ghenghis Khan destroyed most of the city during his sojourn in the 13th century. The two buildings he didn't destroy are the Kalyan Minaret (12th century) and the Ismail Samani mausoleum (9th-10th century). Perhaps the most famous event that occurred in Bukhara was the beheading of two British Government agents in 1842 after two years of captivity, much of which was endured in an insect and rat infested pit at the city jail, today known as the "Bug Pit." Buddhism, Zoroastrism and Nestorian Christianity had been the prevailing religions before conversion to Islam under Arab conquest. There is also a
fascinating history of the Bukharan Jews who have lived in the city and region since being exiled during the Babylonian conquest of Israel. Bukhara to this day contains a Jewish quarter and synagogue although most have emigrated since 1991 to either Israel or the USA.
