The project, which has no analogues in the world today, is carried out thanks to the conditions created in the years of Independence, as well as the personal attention of the President of the Republic of Uzbekistan Shavkat Mirziyoyev to the issues of careful preservation, enrichment and augmentation of the historical, cultural and intellectual heritage of the Uzbek people.
