In the 19th century, Mahram was a Kokand fortress (fortress) on the left bank of the Syr Darya River, located 44 miles (i.e. 45 kilometers) from Khojent .
During the uprising in the Kokand Khanate in 1873 - 1876, Mahram became the center of the rebel forces.
On August 22, 1875, General Kaufman  during the fighting against the detachments of the Kokand Khanate , which eventually led to the liquidation of the Khanate, took this fortress and completely defeated the Kokandans, who lost more than 2 thousand killed in this battle. On the Russian side, 5 killed and 8 wounded were lost. However, it should be noted that the Russian troops suffered sensitive losses a few days after the capture of the fortification  .
In Tashkent, before the revolution of 1917, one of the central streets of the city was called Makhramsky Prospekt  , and another street was called Khoroshkhinskaya , in honor of Alexander Pavlovich Khoroshkhin .
