Ruins of Buddhist temple and monastery lost in a military zone close to Afghanistan border...

My experience, Explo description: 

Many Bouddha statues made of clay were found at that site. The monastery was destroyed on the 5th century after Jesus Christ by Sassanid troops. The site has been shortly restored by UNESCO and the Japanese government.

The stupa, (2nd century BC.) is made of bricks, is just a little remain of a former building.

The main central square is lined on its west side by the monks cells, and on its east side by the community hall.

My personal recommendations: 

If you stay in Samarkand, you can rent a taxi with a driver for 2 days to go to Termez. Might be really useful cause you will need a car once you are at Termez to visit all the places around. Total price for 2 days : 100 euros.

How getting there: 

The site is about 10km (NW) from Termez, driving along the M39 road going to Samarkand. On contrary to Kara Tepe, you can access Fayaz Tepe easily from the M39 road.
Whatever many guides might say, getting to Termez is not so complicated. Unfortunately, not many buses and trains are getting there. 3 direct flights to Tashkent every day. Taxi from Samarkand (single way : 40euros : 7h drive...).

A tip to sleep: 

You can stay in Termez.
