Indeed, the settlement of Afrasiab did not exist: the inhabitants called this area in such way in honor of mythical king of Turan-Afrasiab. However, city life had flowed in the period from the 6th century and up to the conquest of the territory by Genghis Khan.
At the site of the settlement was also opened the eponymous museum, which keeps archaeological excavations.
