HISSAR FORTRESS (3000 years old) — located 26 km from Dushanbe (West). The fortress is an open-air Museum. A number of legends from the work of A. Firdousi "Shahname"are connected with the Hissar fortress.
Hissar is the capital of the province of Eastern Bukhara and was in the hands of the Governor of Emir Ibrahim Bey until 1924, when he was defeated by the red army. The fortress overlooks the market square, surrounded by a caravanserai and two madrasas, one of which is an ethnographic Museum. Other unique historical finds near the Hissar fortress are the Mausoleum of mahdumi Azam, Masjidi-I-Sangin ("Stone mosque"), and the natural source of Chashmai Mohien
