Zeravshan River is a river in Central Asia. Its name, "sprayer of gold" in Persian, refers to the presence of gold-bearing sands in the upper reaches of the river. It rises on the fringes of the Pamirs in Tajikistan, flowing due west for some 300 kilometres, passing Penjikent before entering Uzbekistan, where it turns west-to-north-west, flowing past Samarkand until it bends left again to the west north of Navoiy and further to the south-west, passing Bukhara before it is lost in the desert not quite reaching the Amu Darya.
