Today we have sufficient documentation and archeological sites to utterly prove that Uzbekistan, and especially its southern part - Surkhandarya region, is the most ancient civilization in Central Asia. Only here can you enjoy viewing world famous monuments, whose history goes back to the foundation of civilization. Only in Surkhandarya can you see the Teshik Tosh cave, where the skeleton of the first man, which dates to the stone age, was found; rock murals in Zarautsay gorge, ancient settlements and Buddhist monasteries, such as Dalverzintepa (2-3rd c.), Kampirtepa (3-2nd c.
