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.

One of the world heritage site located in Kazakhstan. For big earthy, I k, stark at the entrance to the anticlimactic, but it was Timur who led the construction without waiting for completion, has died. This mausoleum is unfinished. Decorated with Central Asia's unique Blue Dome and part of the other, beautiful tile work. That is, if continues to work at the entrance part fun, imagine how it was decorated. COJA Ahmed yasawi inside the temple was a charismatic preacher, lined with the graves. Kitchen and all was lost. The cauldron that is notable that Timur donated. It takes time until the water boiled too large, it is hard. Premises are left more than one temple, Hammam mark also. Be able to ride camels. The base for visiting the town Shymkent; I pulled up on marshrutka in the trails and out of the Park at more than 100 km/h in less than two hours.View original
