TIEN-SHAN - Prices & Hotel Reviews (Jalal-Abad, Kyrgyzstan) - Tripadvisor
Jalal-Abad city is the regional capital located on the edge of the Fergana Valley and the foothills of Babash Ata mountains, close to the border with Uzbekistan. Jalal-Abad has a long history going back over 2, years as a rest point and market town along the Silk Road. Legend says that the city was named after Jalal-ad-Din who founded a caravanserai to house travelers, merchants, and pilgrims traveling through the region on their way to visit the holy mountain. In the late 19 th century Jalal-Abad became a garrison town of the Russian empire and settlers from Russia began to arrive. You can still see hints from this period in some of the architecture. During the Soviet Union the city was developed further for industry and the city grew in size. This is also when sanatoriums and resorts were built for visitors to enjoy the local therapeutic mud and natural health treatments.
