Itinerary
This is a typical itinerary for this product

Stop At: Panjshanbe Market, Sharq street Panjshanbe Bazaar, Khujand 735700 Tajikistan

Panjshanbe Covered Market is one of Khujand's famous attractions. Panjshanbe means Thursday. In Dushanbe they traded on Mondays, and in Khujand on Thursdays.
The Panjshanbe bazaar is located in the very centre of Khujand and in front of it is the mausoleum of Sheikh Muslihiddin. The bazaar consists of the main pavilion and many shops, tents, and shops adjacent to it. It is always very noisy here, as not only residents of the city come for shopping, but also guests from nearby villages.
The main feature of the Panjshanbe market is its unique architecture and decor. The construction of the pavilion was carried out in the middle of the twentieth century and was completed in 1964. The bazaar building combines elements of oriental and the Stalinist empire, and the decoration is harmoniously performed using the Soviet and Eastern styles.

After archaeological excavations, it was found that the first fortress was erected in the VI-V centuries BC, and consisted of an embankment rampart gradually converted into thick walls of raw clay. Moreover, in addition to the fortress, there was a city wall covering 20 hectares.
During the heyday of the Great Silk Road, the Khujand fortress was rebuilt, as well as the city wall. However, the city grew even more, and was divided into three parts: the citadel, rabad and shahristan. At that time, the Khujand fortress was considered one of the most important city in Central Asia. However, the fortress was destroyed by Genghis Khan's army. In 1219-1220.
In 1999, part of the eastern wall of the Khujan fortress, dating back to the 8th-10th centuries, was restored.

This large memorial ensemble, located in the historical part of the city, was erected on the grave of Muslihiddin Khujandi - the ruler of the city of Khujand and poet who lived in the XII century. Sheikh Muslihiddin was a holy miracle worker. At first he was buried in the village of Unji (a suburb of Khujand), but his admirers moved the sheikh's ashes to the city and erected a mausoleum on this site. It was in the 12th century. Then the mausoleum was a small burial chamber of burnt bricks, decorated with terracotta. This tomb was destroyed during the Mongol invasion.
In the XIV century, the mausoleum was rebuilt again. Today the Sheikh Muslikhiddin Mausoleum is an architectural ensemble consisting of a mosque, a minaret of the 19th century (height over 20 m) and sheikh Muslikhiddin's mausoleum.
