  • City of Samarkand is surrounded by walls until it is destroyed in the Genghis Khan from close-up Hill Historical site of Afrasiyab BC, but is was spread on the hills of this close-up. This statue in the square will be a caravan of camels? I thought it was difficult for dozens of kilometres walk is a realistic image, but in this desert.
