Azlarkhon eshon mosque

According to historical documents, the Azlarkhon (Azizlarkhon) eshon Mosque was built in the middle of the 18th century by a man named Mirkurbansheikh. In particular, Mirkurbansheikh Azizon arrived in Tashkent, to whom the lands of the Yalangkari mahalla were transferred. Mirkurbansheikh Azizon built a mosque and worked here . Chinar tree, located in the yard of the mosque, was planted during mosque’s construction and its age is about 300 years old. It is said that Mirkurbansheikh Azizon married the daughter of eshon, had children and at the end of his life returned to Arabia, meanwhile his children lived in the Yalangkari mahalla. According to some oral sources, the origin of Mirkurbanshaikh Azizon is also associated with Suzuk ota (a descendant of Khoja Ahmad Yassavi).

The mosque’s name is directly related to the activities of the later generations of Mirkurbansheikh azizon - Khodikhon azizlar or Zayniddinkhon eshan. The reason is that both of them were popularly known as "Azizlarkhon". Therefore, there is no fact among the population about that Azizlarkhon Eshon may be Khodikhon azizlar or Zayniddinkhon Eshon.

The Azizlarkhon Eshon Mosque is one of the oldest mosques in Tashkent and today a complete restoration of the mosque is planned.


Address: Tashkent city, Shaykhantakhur district, at the intersection of Yalangkor and Chinor berkkocha streets, 2
