Information
Turkestan covered an area of 1.6 million square miles from the Caspian Sea into Xinjiang.
Along the Silk Road connecting China to the Mediterranean, the area has been
conquered numerous times over the centuries, first by the Persians, Chinese and Mongols.
In the mid-1800s, the western portion was conquered by Russia, and the area divided
into Uzbek, Tadzhik and Kirgiz, and portions into Kazakh from which the modern
day nations of UZBEKISTAN, KAZAKHSTAN, KYRGYZSTAN, TURKMENISTAN
and TAJIKISTAN were erected. Today, East Turkestan is an autonomous region
of China see SINKIANG (CHINESE TURKESTAN).
Local stamps were issued in 1923, not recognized by catalogues.
