Religious buildings of Uzbekistan

Uzbekistan is a multiethnic country. Representatives of more than 130 different ethnic groups live on its territory. Such a situation began to form in the Middle Ages, in the heyday of the Great Silk Road. Caravans flocked to large cities located on this historical route from all parts of the world, and along with goods they brought here elements of their cultures, traditions and customs. Religion was no exception: to this day many religions coexist peacefully in Uzbekistan. This is evidenced by the temples of various religions, often erected several centuries ago. Buildings associated with various world religions have long become part of Uzbekistan’s unique architectural heritage. From time immemorial, the understanding that mutual respect is the basis of consent has been rooted in this country.
