Playing a huge role in the history of the Islamic Civilization and being a motherland to such great scholars as Imam Al-Bukhari, Ibn Sina (Avicenna), Al Khorezmi and many others, Uzbekistan is a must place to visit to Muslim travelers. Our country has recently been working on creating excellent Muslim tour packages to Uzbekistan (Pilgrimage Tours to Uzbekistan), attracting not only Muslim travelers to the holy places belonging to Islamic history located all over the country, but also Buddhist and Zoroastrian monuments that take place in the lands of Uzbekistan. In Central Asia, especially in Uzbekistan, beside the Islamic medieval holy sites, memorial complexes, mausoleums and mosques, in some locations, centuries-old holy sites and architectures which belong to Buddhism and Zoroastrian religions still preserved. During the centuries these sites were considered as a center of pilgrimage and holy place for believers. Each one has a legend attached to it that still creates curiosity among pilgrims and tourists to visit them often.
For the followers of Islam, Memorial complex of Imam Al –Bukhari and Mausoleum of Bahouddin Naqshbandi are one of the must-visit sites as these people were the hadith collector and teacher of early Islamic period in Cental Asia.
While places like Fayaz tepa, Kara tepa and Dalwarzin tepa were known for its Buddhism culture in Uzbekistan, respectively, Ayaz Kala and Tuprak Kala were famous among Zoroastrian believers.
