Mahalla Katta Khirmontepa mainly consists of multi-storey houses.

The mahalla should be a kind of bridge between the people and the state, said Shavkat Mirziyoyev. Its main task is always to be aware of the joys and cares of people.

Vehicles in our country, especially in the capital, are growing which indicates the advancing the population’s prosperity, the dynamic development of our country. The main goal of the ongoing large-scale reforms lies in boosting the life quality of the population, securing the human interests.
