Visit of the president of uzbekistan to bukhara region

Our main goal is to create decent conditions for people, to increase the regions’ industrial potential

On March 29, 2019, the President of the Republic of Uzbekistan Shavkat Mirziyoyev arrived in Bukhara region to become acquainted with socio-economic reforms, the construction and landscaping activities, major projects at places and to conduct dialogue with people.

During the previous visit to the region, the Head of the state outlined large-scale tasks for further development of all areas. Extensive activities have been carried out within the framework of the assigned tasks. New residential buildings, industrial enterprises and social objects are built. Localization level and export volume has increased. Transport infrastructure and service sector has developed, the flow of tourists has increased. Agricultural opportunities are involved. New residential houses and social facilities are built.

The current trip of the President of the country began with an acquaintance with construction and landscaping activities carried out in the mausoleum of Abduhalik Gijduvani.

Abduhalik Gijduvani was born in 1103 in the city of Gijduvan. The thinker was trained by Yusuf Hamadoni. The resting place of the spiritual master of Bukhara – the first of the Seven Saints has now turned into a shrine.

During his visit to the region on February 16 last year, the Head of the state gave instructions on reconstruction in accordance with modern requirements of the Seven Saints complex, consisting of the mausoleums of Abduhalik Gijduvani, Bahouddin Naqshband, Arif Revgari, Ali Romitani, Boboy Samosi, Mahmud Fagnavi, Sayyid Amir Kulol, and creation of modern infrastructure along the roads connecting the mausoleums.

In this regard, large-scale creative work is carried out in the Seven Saints complex. Including a new mosque and a veranda, a monument to the Khazir and a hotel are being built in the mausoleum of Abduhalik Gijduvani, the surrounding area is being landscaped.

The President got acquainted with construction and repair work carried out in the mausoleum.

– One thing is to learn about it from books, another is to personally join, to see everything with the own eyes. This place should become the center of enlightenment that gives people the knowledge, – said Shavkat Mirziyoyev.

Here information was presented on the ongoing restoration and improvement work in the mausoleums of the Seven Saints. In order to widely promote the heritage of our great ancestors all over the world, to create all the necessary conditions for visitors, creative work in these mausoleums is carried out on the basis of a single concept. All places of worship are fenced with walls, a mosque, a museum, a hotel, a teahouse, parking for cars, souvenir and bookstores are being erected, and the territory adjacent to them is completely improved.

Most importantly, in accordance with the idea of the President, visiting the Seven Saints mausoleums will begin from one direction, that is, local and foreign tourists arriving in the region by air, rail and road transport will begin visiting from Khoja Abduhalik Gijduvani mausoleum.

The Head of the state noted the need to create a book about the Seven Saints, to promote their scientific heritage.

– There is no such spiritual treasure anywhere else. It is necessary to thoroughly study all the information related to it and bring it to people, especially young people, in an accessible language. Our goal is to let the younger generation know and be proud of this heritage, – the President said.

The international community widely recognizes the attention paid to enlightened Islam in Uzbekistan, the improvement of mausoleums of great ancestors. In particular, Bukhara is named the capital of Islamic culture in 2020 by the Islamic Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (ISESCO).
