SAMARKAND, 24 May (BelTA- Emirates News Agency) - The "From the Arabian Peninsula to Central Asia: Treasures from Sharjah on the Silk Road" exhibition, a first of its kind, concluded on a high note on Wednesday in Samarkand, Uzbekistan.

Organised by the Sharjah Antiquities Authority and the Uzbek Ministry of Ecology, Environmental Protection and Climate Change, the exhibition enjoyed immense popularity at the Silk Road House of Arts in Samarkand.

Residents and visitors flocked to see the unique offerings that showcased the rich history and cultural ties between the Arabian Peninsula and Central Asia. The exhibition featured rare archaeological treasures discovered in Sharjah, spanning from the Neolithic era to the Islamic Golden Age.
