Trip Planner: Asia / Kazakhstan / South Kazakhstan Province / Turkestan / Sightseeing / The Mausoleum of Khoja Ahmed Yasawi
Admire Persian miniature paintings and exquisite designs on façades of The Mausoleum of Khoja Ahmed Yasawi, a World Heritage Site that's one of the largest and best-preserved architectural complexes of the Timurid period. An impressive turquoise dome, with ochre and blue patterns, makes this edifice a masterwork of architecture. Housing the tomb of the 12th century Sufi master, the complex was built from 1389 to 1405 by Tamerlane, whose death caused it to remain unfinished. Persian masters experimented with the style, which was later used in Samarkand. Use our Turkestan vacation trip planner to visit The Mausoleum of Khoja Ahmed Yasawi on your trip to Turkestan, and learn what else travelers and our writers recommend seeing nearby.
