Dehistan is a medieval town that is located in the western part of the country and is a unique place that can only exist in the territory of the Republic of Turkmenistan.

Buildings, ancient towers, at least the ancient city, date back to 10–12 centuries. A mosque belongs to the early Islamic period. Here, the well-preserved old part with minarets and the mausoleum Shir-Kabir and the nameless caravanserais remain.

The Shir-Kabir mausoleum was built in the architectural school's Serakhs style. Its walls were made of mud bricks in a square, and its dome was decorated with Kufic inscriptions and it carved ganch.

The mosque, which was built at the mausoleum of Shir-Kabir, is one of the oldest mosques in the entire territory of the Republic of Turkmenistan.

Not far from the port city are the ruins of a caravanserai, which called "Tasharvat".

Caravanserai is located in the path of the Silk Road. All that remains of the caravan is the building in a rectangular shape and a special place where once grew a grove of elm.
