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.
