Low angle view across Khast Imam Square to the Tellya Sheikh Mosque, founded 16th century, restored 19th century, Tashkent, Uzbekistan, pictured on July 4, 2010, in the afternoon. Tashkent's main Friday mosque holds the Osman Koran, claimed to be the world's oldest, in its library. 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. Picture by Manuel Cohen.
