 The "Anchor" Canal

  The "Anhor" Canal means «large irrigation canal», located in Tashkent. It flows into the lake of the National Park A. Navoi. In pre-revolutionary sources the canal was called “Angor”. There are several versions about the origin of this name: "Anzor" – “grape”, “Angor” – “field”, “Anhar” – “rivers”.

  At the end of the XIX centuries, Anhor was the boundary between old town and the new part of the city. In 1913 the first modern bridge Urda was built in Tashkent. Originally it was a wooden, made of brick.
