Kaplanbek was an estate some 14 miles northwest of the city of Tashkent in Turkestan (now part of Uzbekistan), Central Asia, where the first and second groups of the chiliastic Mennonites from Samara, inspired by Claas Epp, found a temporary shelter after their arrival on 15 October and 25 November 1880, respectively. When the successor of Governor Konstantin von Kaufmann, with whom they had made arrangements for settlement, did not honor the promise, the group proceeded to Bokhara and from there to Khiva.
