The International Institute for Central Asian Studies (IICAS) is pleased to announce that the implementation of phase II of the Design and Supervision of Beautification and General Improvement of Three Historical, Natural and Cultural Objects in the Khatlon Region of Tajikistan project (Khoja Mashkhad, Chiluchor Chashma and Hulbuk) is in progress.
The field mission of IICAS staff made it possible to record the current state of affairs at the sites, as well as to hold a series of negotiations to discuss administrative and technical issues.
We would like to highlight that the landscaping is carried out in full accordance with the detailed design prepared by A.R.S. Progetti S.P.A. (Italy) and IICAS. While the monuments themselves are outside the scope of the project, every possible effort is being made to maintain their state of conservation and improve their interpretation and presentation by creating convenient visitor infrastructure.
