On the day you visit Tolkucha Market, plan to stop at Nisa, (a UNESCO World Heritage Site), which is also located on the outskirts of Ashkabad. This archeological site dates back to the time of the Parthians in the third century B.C. As would be expected, only ruins are left, but it enough for you to glimpse back to the building expertise and architectural skills of so long ago. You park quite a distance from the actual site and at first glance it looks look a jumble of crumbling mud dwellings. But as you approach via the long path and get close to the ruins, it becomes apparent that at one time a great city stood here. The empire of the Parthians rivaled that of Alexander the Great and Nisa remained an important city until the 13th century when it was sacked by the Mongols.
