Before journeying on your Uzbekistan Tours you should discover some of the histories of the place. The Russians needed to access the land around the territory of Emir Abdul Ahad of Bukhara to build the Railways and therefore signed an agreement with him to not come within 16 kilometers around his territory. But the railway workers needed a place of settlement around the rail lines. This was the cause of the new settlement built close to Kagan and this new town along with the Railways opened up in 1888 that you will find on your Uzbekistan Tours. When Emir visited this settlement he was captivated with its exquisiteness and architectural designs.
