Location in Tajikistan

Rudaki District or Nohiyai Rudaki (Tajik: Ноҳияи Рӯдакӣ) is a district in the Region of Republican Subordination in Tajikistan. It stretches south from Dushanbe, bordering on Shahrinaw, Hisor, and Varzob districts from the north and northwest, Tajikistan's Khatlon Province from the south and the east, and Uzbekistan from the west. Its administrative capital is Somoniyon, a southern suburb of Dushanbe, called Leninskii in the Soviet period.[1]

A border guard training center is located here, used by the Tajik Border Troops.[2] In October 2013, the Tajik Interior Ministry opened a new police station in the district.[3]
