bukhara Explained

Bukhara at English => English (The Britannica Concise) Of Explained:

City (pop., 1993 est.: 238,000), W Uzbekistan. Lying east of the Amu Darya, it was founded in the 1st cent. AD and was a major trade center when the Arabs captured it in 710. Built up by the Samanid dynasty, it became the capital of their realm, which stretched from Baghdad to India and from Bukhara to the Persian Gulf. Falling to Genghis Khan in 1220 and to Timur in 1370, it was taken by the Uzbeks, who in the 16th cent. made it the capital of the khanate of Bukhara. In 1868 the khanate was made a Russian protectorate, and in 1920 a Soviet republic. Bukhara was the capital until the republic was absorbed into the Uzbek S.S.R. in 1924. It became part of Uzbekistan on that country's independence in 1991.
