Modern Termez originated in the late nineteenth century, and had the appearance of a typical semi-Asiatic, semi-European city – it was a one-story, with the state buildings of burnt bricks and residential buildings of raw bricks, with oriental flat roofs and with western style – windows on the street side, with green gardens, unchanged acacias, elms and plane trees along the sidewalks. Years of researches of scientists, archaeological excavations have discovered that this peaceful and quiet city has a long and rich history. For millennia, Surkhandarya region and its main city Termez were part of many empires – Alexander the Great, Kushan Empire, Genghis Khan, Amir Temur, sharing their destiny with them. The earliest name of Termez, which came in world history, was Taramastha or Taramata, which translated from Bactrian means “river side”. In 327 BC Alexander the Great conquered Termez, renamed this city to his own name – Alexandria. After Alexander the Great, the founder of the Greco-Bactrian state Demetrius renamed city as Demetris city. In the 1st century BC, in connection with the defeat of the Greco-Bactrian state , Termez, according to written sources, was called Ta-li-mi, and Chinese sources – Tu-mi, or Tami. In the 1st century AD Termez became one of the most important Buddhist centers in Central Asia, as evidenced by the many religious complexes found in the vicinity of Termez. The most significant of these complexes are Kara-Tepa with the ruins of monasteries, monuments and the remains of frescoes amd ancient inscriptions in Fayaztepa Zurmala. All of them were built in the 2nd century BC during the reign of the Kushan king Kanishka, who declared Buddhism the state religion. In addition, the Termez preserved ancient buildings such as the Mausoleum of Mohammed Abdullah Ibn Ali Termeziy – saint patron of the city (10-15 century), castle ruins Kirk-Kiz 9th century, the mausoleum of Sultan Saadat 11-17 centuries and the remains of walls Kampir Tepe . Historical studies and archaeological excavations show that since the beginning of the ninth century Termez became a major trade and craft center, connected with China, India, Byzantium, Parthia, Egypt, Rome, Afghanistan, the Black Sea coast. On the territory of Surkhandarya archaeologists excavated several settlements – Khalchayan, Zartepa, Fayaztepa, Airtam, indicating to rich both material and spiritual culture of the people who inhabited this land.
