It is a great shame that this place is so difficult to find and sadly lots of local people do not seem to know about it! Some of Tajikistan's most celebrated artists have their studios here and if you can get by in Tajik, Farsi or Russian, a visit and chat with these guys (and one woman) will provide you... More
