Registan, Samarkand

(4.8/5 based on 850+ reviews on the web)
In the heart of the ancient city lies Registan, a World Heritage-listed public square known for its distinctive Islamic architecture. Enveloped by grand madrassahs on three sides, the plaza has also hosted major social events through the ages. Examine the elaborate facade and unique decor of each school as you explore the restored square and all the traditionally built structures surrounding. Purchase an all-day ticket to enter the madrassahs, and tip the guards to climb the minarets for a panoramic view of the square. Put Registan into our Samarkand itinerary builder and find out what's close by, where to stay, and where to head next.

  • The clash of perceptions of past culture and monuments from the time of the heyday of the Silk Road. Places that cause admiration care old masters mosaics, the vastness and power of the former Caliphate of Samarkand. Fairytale

  • Very beautiful historical place. Amazing architecture and tiles work. The main hall with beautiful golden work is amazing. Ticket to entry to all three buildings is 21000 Som I.e. Uzbekistan currency. But all the rooms inside the three buildings are rented to shops selling souvenirs.
  • One of the best places to be an one of the most beautiful squares in the world. Come here for sunrise to get a chance to go up one of the minaret's.
  • Samarkand is 3rd worlds old citi on the earth Samarkand age comparable with Roome . Alexander great fighter were here and Registan is in Samarkand and withness of most histories
  • It's my dream place to visit. All people are nice to others and I felt real peace here.
  • What can you say. It really lives up to the hype.
