Abdulkhan Bandi Dam

.

Abdulkhan Bandi Dam is part of the Tentative list of Uzbekistan in order to qualify for inclusion in the World Heritage List.

Abdulkhan Bandi Dam (Abdullaxon bandi in Uzbek) is a 16th century ancient reservoir built on the order of ruler of Bukharam Abdullah II on the Beklarsay river (Biglar in Russian). It was made of shale and connected with stone slabs and a special water-resistant gypsum mixture. It was 73 meter long, constructed at the narrowest point of the river canyon. The turbulent river broke the dam and at the present time, only two third of it remains. A modern dam has been built practically at the same point (Akchabsay reservoir).
