Boysun (Uzbek: Boysun, Russian: Байсун, romanizedBaysun) is a city in Surxondaryo Region, Uzbekistan and capital of Boysun District.[2] The population was 16,732 as of the 1989 census,[3] and 27,600 in 2016.[1]

Thousands of years in the narrow mountain gorge, the merchant caravans have passed through Iron Gates. This region has been passed by the Armies of Alexander the Great, Genghis Khan, and Tamerlane. The Teshik-Tash caves contain remnants of the Neanderthal people. The nearby Kugitang Mountains nearby still contain wall paintings known as "magic bull hunting", dating from the Mesolite period.[4]

Boysun's citizens adorn their homes with colorful suzane[spelling?] (sticky covers), lightweight, sturdy, and cozy tapestries, and elegant decorations and springwear embellish their clothes and shoes. On tables and sculptured trunks near walls are painted ceramic dinnerware.[5]
