The settlement consists of a hill 400-800 metres wide, stretching about 1,5 km from east to west situated on a terrace of the left bank of the river Zerafshan. The total area of the site is more than 100 hectares. In the northern and western parts there are now the villages of Sahibnazar and Gurach and in the north eastern part Avazali. Crops are grown in significant portion of this site. A part of Sarazm which remains undisturbed is about 30 hectares. Research gives ground for the opinion that the ancient settlement existed here for about one and a half millennia from 3,400 and 2,000 B.C.
