Nyýazow, previously called Andreyevsk and Täzebazar, and in Russian referred to as "Niyazovsk" or "Nyyazovsk", is a city subordinate to a district and the administrative center of Saparmyrat Nyýazow District, Daşoguz Province, Turkmenistan.[1][2]

Etymology

The words Täze bazar mean in Turkmen "new bazaar", "new market". Atanyyazow explains that this name refers to a then-new bazaar set up at a crossroads of major routes leading to Uzbekistan and Turkmenistan.[3] The modern name pays homage to Saparmurat Niyazov (Nyýazow is the Turkmen spelling of his last name).

History

As of 1957 the municipality was designated a town of urban type (Russian: посёлок городского типа). On 12 October 1957 by decree of the Presidium of the Supreme Soviet of the Turkmen SSR it was renamed from Andreyevsk to Täzebazar and was designated the administrative center of Daşoguz District.[4] On 8 February 1993, by Parliamentary Resolution No. 806-XII, the town of Täzebazar was renamed town of Nyýazow (Ныязов посёлогы). The Russian translation of this resolution calls the town "Niyazovsk" (Ниязовск).[5] This Russian version of the name is further attested in Presidential Decree 1327 of 5 May 1993.[6] In June 2016 Nyýazow was upgraded to city status by decree of the Mejlis, and the village of Azatlyk was subordinated to it.[7]
