Along The Caravansaray Trail

The Silk Road is one of the dream destinations of many travellers! Countless nations, merchants and pilgrims travelled along this longest trading route in history. Over and over again, adventurers have succumbed to the fascination of this caravansary route. You too can trace these routes through famous cultural landscapes! Along with the historic towns of Khiva, Bukhara and Samarkand, which owe their splendour and importance to former caravansaries and to craftwork, you will visit Nukus with its valuable Savitski Museum, and Shakhrisabz, the town of Amir Timur (Tamerlan), as well as Termez, the old centre of Buddhism. You will learn what place the ancient monuments of Buddhists and Zoroastrians have in today’s Uzbekistan. Discover the heart of Uzbekistan’s Silk Road – a hospitable country where traditions and modern life exist harmoniously side by side.

This is the former merchant house of Fayzulla Khujayev, a politician who conspired with the Bolsheviks to overthrow Emir Alim Khan, and then became the first president of Bukhara's Peoples Republic. He was liquidated by Stalin during the Great Purge.

Fayzulla Khojaev House, an old house of of a merchant, is the one attraction that is worth going out of the way to see. It is by far the most colorful and beautifully decorated building in the city which was evidenced by some wedding photo shoots taking place during my visit.

One place I'll agree with the crowd -get a guide. Or at least listen in to one from another group :) For once, the guide wasn't worthless like they are 90% of the time in Uzbekistan. For once, I actually learned things I would NOT be able to read in a guidebook. And without a guide, there's little context to the house. Basically, Khodjaev was the son of a wealthy merchant and he inherited the property. He supported the 1917 revolution and was rewarded with the chairmanship of the Uzbek SSR. But he continued to live large on inherited wealth, employing servants, private cooks, private bakers... not very socialistic at all. Yeah, he wound up in the gulag eventually. I hear they raised the entrance fees. I don't know. When they told me the fee, I gave them an indignant look of "What?" They asked me where I was from. Again, with a little bit of mock indignation, I said "Tashkent." Oh, then it was instantly like five or ten times less. That trick only works if you speak Russian though. Everyone else just has to bite the bullet and cough up the $1.25 it costs for foreigners.

This Merchant's Home has many rooms of different styles of decoration, which are clustered around both the men and women's courtyards. The guanch and painted art work are lovely and several rooms are set up as if the family was still living here including baby cradle and winter stoves etc. There is also a kitchen off the courtyard with cooking utensils of the time set up, and assorted storage and stable areas. When we visited a fashion shoot was going on, so we were not able to explore all of the women's wing and historical wing about F Khujayev himself, but appreciated that they let us in to see what we could. Well worth the time because so much of the city is devoted to the superb medieval monuments and this property provides insights into more recent history.
