Anau (also spelled Annau, Turkmen: Änew) is a city in. Turkmenistan. It is the capital of Ahal Province and is 8 km southeast of Ashgabat which is connected via the M37 highway. Traces of habitation in the area date back to the 4th millennia BC, with fine painted potteries, and a seal that may contain the earliest evidence of the movement of writing Eastward toward China. The name Anau is from Persian Âbe nav (آب نو) meaning "New Water".
In 2003, the city built a new stadium and in 2005 a major Museum Ak bugday.
