Baharly District

Baharly District is a district of Ahal Province in Turkmenistan. It used to be known as the Bherden District.

Formed in January 1926 as the Bakharden District of the Poltoratsky District of the Turkmen SSR. Its administrative center was at Bacharden Station. In August 1926 the Poltoratsky District was abolished, and the Bakharden District was directly subordinated to the Turkmen SSR.

In November 1939, the region went to the newly formed Ashkhabad region. In May 1959, the Ashgabat region was abolished and the district again became a direct subordination of the Turkmen SSR.

In 1963, the Bakharden District was abolished, but in 1965 it was rebuilt. In December 1973, the Ashgabat region was again created, which included the Bakharden district. In 1988, the Ashgabat region was again abolished and the district was directly subordinated to the Turkmen SSR.

In the 1990s, the Bakharden District was renamed the Bakharly Etrap and became part of the Akhal Velayat.

Country - Turkmenistan

Flag of Turkmenistan
Turkmenistan ( or ; Türkmenistan, ), formerly known as Turkmenia, officially the Republic of Turkmenistan, is a country in Central Asia, bordered by Kazakhstan to the northwest, Uzbekistan to the north and east, Afghanistan to the southeast, Iran to the south and southwest, and the Caspian Sea to the west. Ashgabat is the capital and largest city. The population of the country is 5.6 million, the lowest of the Central Asian republics and one of the most sparsely populated in Asia.

Turkmenistan has been at the crossroads of civilizations for centuries. In medieval times, Merv was one of the great cities of the Islamic world and an important stop on the Silk Road, a caravan route used for trade with China until the mid-15th century. Annexed by the Russian Empire in 1881, Turkmenistan later figured prominently in the anti-Bolshevik movement in Central Asia. In 1925, Turkmenistan became a constituent republic of the Soviet Union, Turkmen Soviet Socialist Republic (Turkmen SSR); it became independent upon the dissolution of the Soviet Union in 1991.
