In 1220 Taraz was conquered by the hordes of Chingiz-Khan and was razed to the ground.
Taraz achieved its violent growth in X-XIIth centuries, the testimony of which is the forked network of water pipes made of clay pipes, remains of architectural structures, pavements and paved streets, numerous hand-mades of skilful masters, which were found during excavations.
According to the reports of Arab historian-geographer Makdisi, at the end of Xth century Taraz represented the large fortified town with numerous gardens and densely populated.
At least 15 women from Taraz and the village of Merke, on the border with Kyrgyzstan, are known to have been sent to Turkey and the United Arab Emirates to work in the sex industry, and many more are suffering sexual exploitation in saunas and brothels at home.
On May 5 in Taraz, she was found guilty and jailed for four years, the first person in the legal history of the region to be sentenced under an article in the criminal code prohibiting the recruitment of women for sexual exploitation.
