A low angle view of Sheikhantaur Mausoleum, Tashkent, Uzbekistan, early 15th century and restored in the 19th century, seen in the late afternoon summer light on July 3, 2010. Tashkent, 2000 year old capital city of Uzbekistan, a Silk Road city whose name means "Stone Fortress", is now very modern due to a disastrous earthquake in 1966, after which it was greatly rebuilt. However, some of the old buildings still stand in the glittering modern city.
