Golden age of the Tajiks

The golden age of the Tajik nation is connected to the time of the Samanids, a period which gave an unprecedented rise to the genius and creativity of the people in science, art, literature and culture. The learning and culture, science and philosophy, which flourished during this period, not only linked together the past, present and future of the Tajik nation, they also bridged the gap between the civilization of the East and the West. There are such famous names as, Abu Ali Ibn Sina (Avicenna) – a world known scientist, Abu Abdollah Jafar Rudaki – the founder of Persian – Tajik literature, Abdul Qusim Firdawsi – the famous Persian-Tajik poet, Balkhami – the great vizier and thinker. It is hard to imagine that mathematics, natural sciences and philosophy could have reached the present day level of development had it not been for the discoveries and achievements made by Omar Khayam, Mohammed al Khorazmi, Nasr al-Farabi, Zakhari al-Razi, al-Biruni and many other scholars.

In 1920, the last Emir of Bukhara briefly took refuge in Dushanbe after being overthrown by the Bolshevik revolution. He fled to Afghanistan after the Red Army conquered the area the next year. Following the Red Army victory in Central Asia the village was upgraded to town in 1925 and made the capital of the newly created Tajik Autonomous Soviet Socialist Republic (Tajik ASSR). After the transformation of Tajik ASSR to Tajik Soviet Socialist Republic (Tajik SSR) in 1929, Dyushambe was renamed Stalinabad, after Joseph Stalin. As part of Nikita Khrushchev’s de-Stalinization initiative, the city was renamed Dushanbe in 1961.
