  • This is one of the madrassas is probably more beautiful, Tillya Kori, meaning "gold, gold". Twenty years led its construction. It is dorado-azulado inside, sumptuous as few. You don't know to look, you don't expect it, where is a marvel, the truth

  • In this complex there is another branch of reviews titled "Registan", because all the madrassas listed here constitute a single complex, both architectural and museum ticket too uniform, at the end of April it was priced for foreigners 7 dollars or 25 700 soum, if convert Scrip to dollars at the market rate-we ended up 3.4 us dollar price. For permission to photographing separately money did not take. Moreover, for each of the madrasa has its own branch reviews: "Tillya-Kari", "Sher-Dor", "Ulugbek madrassah". For me, visiting the complex turned out to be the strongest impression throughout Uzbekistan (the rest of the satellites more liked Bukhara in General). Time we had limited, before closing at 19.00 hours, 1.5 remained and it was clearly not enough. But managed to see the main even will go on. We like what they do complex "alive", unlike freezing Museum exhibition. Previously, lived and studied here people, not watched exhibitions. Companions climbed the Minaret Medrese of Ulugbek, take extra money, don't know how. Closer to closing the amount we requested, declined in 3 times, with 500 USD. per person, up to 500 USD. for three, and asked it is in LCY. At sunset the Sun very nicely played on the facades and the stages of the complex. In the evening, in the area of 20.00 30.04 was very beautiful, bright lights, complex event schedule.
