Registan, Samarkand
(4.8/5 based on 800+ 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.

  • 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.
