ABOUT HISSAR FORTRESS

*Hissar

30-km west of Dushanbe, on the wide mountain-fringed plain,  you find the remains of an 18th century fortress, occupied until 1924 by Ibrahim Beg, the local henchman of the emir of Bukhara. Once a Basmachis strong hold, the, the fortress was destroyed by the Red Army and all that remains is reconstructed. A scramble to the top is rewarded with some excellent views. Two medresse’s  (from 18th and 19th century)are beside the fortress. The older   medresse (facing the fortress gate) contains a small museum with displays of clothing, ceramics and jewelers.
A 16th century mausoleum of Makhtumi Azam (an Islamic master) is beyond the medrassas.
Visiting the calm and pleasant Choykhona (Tea house), at the foot of the grassy slopes around the fortress is a must.
To get high quickly, contact Intourist, and ask to visit their boar-hunting base north of Dushanbe in Hissar rang.]
