Historical places in Termes

1. Dalverzin Tepe – was once one of the most glorious Kushan cities of the age and an early capital for the Yue Chi Turkic tribes. Today only sunken remains of a Buddhist temple, Bactrian shrine and Zoroastrian altar remain, encased in a five-sided city wall between the modern towns of Denau and Shurchi, 180 km from Termez, toward Tajik border.

2. The Buddhist monastery complex of Kara Tepa is unique in Central Asia. Not only is it the only rock-hewn Buddhist cave complex in the region, and thus the main connecting thread between the Afghan sites of Haibak and Bamian and the sites of the far side of the Oxus, it is also the only monastery to lie behind an electrified fence in international no-man’s-land.

3. The Fayaz Tepa site, four km north of Termez consists of the archaeological remains of a two-millenniums old Buddhist temple and monastery complex, whose impact is perhaps more intellectual than visual. The large central courtyard, the heart of the Buddhist temple, is flanked to the west by the main living quarters of the monastery and to the east by the main refectory. The brick stupa to the north of the temple dates from the first century BC and is only inner section of a much larger construction that rose from the cross shaped foundations. Clay and gypsum statues of Buddha, a series of murals depicting various adorants in Kushan dress and fragment of pottery containing Brahmi, Punjabi, Kharoshti and Bactrian scripts have all been found on the site, underlining its essentially Eastern orientation. Remain have also been discovered of a two-kilometer aqueduct that supplied the monastery with water from the Amu Daria. The monastery was looted in the 5th century by Sassanid troops and later used as a burial ground and retreat for Sufic mystics of a rather different religious persuasion.

4. The trio of Buddhist archaeological memorabilia is completed by the sixteen meter high Zurmala Tower, situated five kilometers southeast of Termez and visible from main road. This sixteen-meter-high brick tower is the remnant of the largest Buddhist stupa in the area and is possibly the oldest construction still standing in Uzbekistan. Back to the third and fourth centuries AD, at the height of Buddhist influence, the base of the stupa would have been covered with white lime-stone slabs below red brick decoration and would have housed a collection of sacred Buddhist relics. Today, this former religious magnet lies lost in a deserted cotton field, torn by a huge, heart-rending crack.

5. Kampyr Tepa – the ruins of the fortress are situated 38 êì from Termez on the right shore of the Amy Daria. The ruins of the citadel and unfortified settlement around it date from 3-2 century AD. Kampyr Tepa is one of the most studied site in Northern Bactria of Kushan period. Different finds, among them 4 treasures, are kept in the museum of Khamza Institute of Art in Tashkent.
