The name "Termez" comes from the word "Taramastakh", which translates as "a place on the opposite bank" and it received its final name only in the 10th century. Prior to this, the city was replaced by many names, such as Demitrias, Antioch, Tamo, Tami, etc. It is believed that Buddhism came to the territory of Termez back in the days of the Greco-Bactrian kingdom. This is confirmed by many finds of archaeologists belonging to that era.

Over the millennia, the existence of the city was ruled by many dynasties, among which were the Achaemenids, Alexander of Macedon, the Kushan kingdom and many others. During the time of Amir Timur and his descendants, Termez occupied a special place in embassy relations with China.
