The city got its name from the phrase "Namak Kan", which is translated from Persian as "salt mine". Archaeologists have found traces of ancient villages that were located here at the beginning of our era. In honor of the salt mine, the city was later named that there was a lake on its territory where locals mined table salt.
Namangan received the status of the city in 1610, and after 10 years people moved to it from the ancient center of the Ferghana Valley, the city of Ahsikent, destroyed by an earthquake.
Namangan has always been famous as a craft city. On its territory lived the best weavers, potters, blacksmiths, tinkers and jewelers. As throughout the Ferghana Valley, the city was engaged in trade and agriculture. At the time when Namangan entered the Kokand Khanate, he was very often attacked, which greatly damaged his economy. In 1821, a new canal was dug in the city, called Yangiarik. He played a very important role in increasing the flow of water into the city.Today it is a large city with a rapidly growing economy, the main areas of which are sericulture, cotton processing, winemaking and the chemical industry.
