 Central Asia, Uzbekistan, was one of the cradles of modern civilization. Whether they were mathematics, medicine, astronomy, painting or music, no field escaped from fundamental discoveries and the influence of the great scientists of the region. It is a historical fact that some remains are not completely saved. However, Emir Timur, better known in the West under the name of Tamerlane, said in the XIV century, "Let people who doubt about our power, come to see our achievements". That is why we invite you to do.
