Tashkent makhallas is part of the Tentative list of Uzbekistan in order to qualify for inclusion in the World Heritage List.

The Tashkent “makhallas” (communities) are traditional quarters within the city. There are currently 505 of them, some defined by trade (jeweller’s, weavers), others by nationality (Turk, Tajik). They at least have one mosque, a tea house and a pond. Examples include historical makhallas such as Hazrati Imam, Koshtut and Guzar Boshi.
