Qurghonteppa Oblast

Qurghonteppa Oblast

Qurghonteppa Oblast (also known as Kurgan-Tyube Oblast) was an administrative subdivision in Tajikistan until 1992, when it was merged with Kulob Oblast to create Khatlon Province. The capital of Qurghonteppa Oblast was the city of Qurghonteppa (Kurgan-Tyube), which is now the capital of Khatlon Province. The inhabitants of Qurghonteppa Oblast included migrant communities from elsewhere in Tajikistan, including Gharmis and Pamiris, that settled in the Vakhsh River valley. Qurghonteppa Oblast saw a great deal of violence during the first year of the civil war in Tajikistan. Many important figures in the Islamic Renaissance Party of Tajikistan originated from Qurghonteppa Oblast, including Sayid Abdulloh Nuri.
