Toki Telpakaurushon Trading Dome

Location - Bukhara

The Toki Telpak Furushon is another 16th-century covered market, where the trade was actively conducted. Toki Telpak Furushon literally means "a dome of hats and headdresses". This meaning shows that the main objects of sale were the headdress, turbans and hats. Gold embroidered, fur or beaded hats were very popular among the local population, and foreign merchants. Long before the appearance of trade shops with hats, there was a dome with merchants of old books. After they were replaced by souvenir shops of local artisans, where musical instruments, knives and other souvenirs were sold.

Once, there was a "caravan-sarai Kulyuta" near the Furuschon dome. It served as a recreational house on the shopping area for travelers and guests. Currently, there is a blacksmith's museum on the site of the caravan-sarai, where skillful smiths forge various knives, swords and sabers, which become excellent national souvenirs. Today, tourists from different countries have a unique opportunity to personally see the process of ancient crafts, as well as buy a favorite souvenir among the wide choice.
