Bridge water divider (head of the 16th century). The remains of the bridge of a water divider through Zerafshan are a monument of material culture, located is slightly lower than the modern railway bridge. As notes of the geographer’s travelers visiting the valley testify, approximately even more ancient bridge built at Temuridakh, and to it - the bridge relating approximately by 8-9 centuries was in the same place. The bridge a water divider was built at the khan Sheybani at the very beginning of the 16th century. Now from the bridge only one brick arch remained

Farhad, on the left bank of the Zeravshan River, just below the railway bridge, from the track you can see a huge brick arch. These are the remains of a huge medieval bridge-water divider, built by Sheybanihan more than 500 years ago.

The history of the construction of this monument is described in detail in the essay "Sheybaniname" Kamaliddin Binai, a historian and poet, who lived in the second half of the XV - early XVI centuries. According to his description, in 1502, when Sheybanikhan was returning from Bukhara to Samarkand, he stopped with his army on the banks of the Kukhak River (Zeravshan). Most likely, as the doctor of historical sciences Abdulakhad Mukhamedzhanov suggested, the ancient bridge over the river in the tract Chupan-ata at that time was destroyed, and the crossing caused difficulties. Seeing this, the ruler ordered the construction of a new bridge over Zerafshan.
