July 15. President Mirziyoyev paid a visit to the tomb of Imam Bukhari after seeing off the Turkmenistan leader where the Ayats from the Quran were recited.

The head of state reviewed the works and gave instructions on creating all the comforts for the pilgrims.
"Insha'Allah, after the opening of this complex, the number of pilgrims will increase. Especially many intellectuals come. All conveniences should be taken into account for them. This place should be not only religious and educational but also a huge cultural centre. Therefore, it is necessary to bring the best florists and turn the complex into a flower garden in winter and summer," said Shavkat Mirziyoyev.
