A small and historic city, Turkistan has become a major place of pilgrimage, with thousands of Muslims arriving each year to visit its main religious monument. Built under the command of ruler Timur in the late 14th century, the mausoleum holds the remains of Khawaja Ahmad Yasawi, a Turkic poet and Sufi who helped spread Islam among the Turkic-speaking world. Beyond this centerpiece of Turkistan tours, a medieval bathhouse represents a highlight of the well-maintained city streets, as do a number of rustic eateries serving shashlyk.
