  • Monday, 25 September-the Madrasa (Islamic school) is a part of the architectural ensemble located in the historic centre around the Lyab-i Hauz (whose translation means in the puddle). Built during the reign of Imam Kuli Khan in 1622 by the Vizier Nadir who was granted the title of Devon Begi (is a title designating the right arm of the Khan). Nadir Divan Begi initially ordered him to build a Khanqah (building designed for meetings, for spiritual retreat, as a hospice for travelers and Islamic students) to which was added a Caravanserai (a building, typically a wall that encloses a large yard and a porch, and that was used for the parking of caravans crossing the desert). Last joined the Madrasa which shows the unique flavor of an animal representation on the façade, with a beautiful mosaic processing showing a Sun with a human face and Simurg (two mythological and fantastic birds that bring prosperity and happiness), which with its claws carrying two pigs (unclean animals for the Islamic religion) out of the sky. Today the madrasa is used as a restaurant, theatre, dance and local fashion shows. Tonight we will see a Soiree.
