Central Asia is the region of grasslands and steppes between the Caspian Sea to the west and Mongolia to the east. As early as the 700s many Central Asian people had already adopted the religion of Islam, which spread rapidly across the region. Traditionally skilled at horsemanship and excelling in traversing vast distances, Central Asian people developed art forms that were portable, notably textiles.
