  • Tourist policies of Uzbekistan perhaps distort points (radically changing the setting) but how not to appreciate the great work done to make this site a place crop and evocative. Fascinating stories and legends (the Lions, the body that grows from year to year, the pistachio tree thriving, etc.) on this "man" Saint or Prophet who does worship by Jews, Christians and Muslims.

  • Wednesday, September 27-there are very few places in the world where a Muslim, a Christian and a Jew can pray together as on this tomb of the Prophet Daniel. It is located on the outskirts of Samarkand in the vicinity of the current excavations. Many legends and assumptions are linked to this tomb. Some argue that the remains have been brought here by early Christians, others think that they have been brought to Samarkand from Iran by Amir Timur (Tamerlane) at the end of his conquests. There are also legends about the size of the Tomb. According to one interpretation, the relics are increasing year by year. Others argue that the tomb was made very long to prevent thieves from finding the right position of the remains and steal them. The building has five domes and inside there is the sarcophagus of well 18 m long which contains the body of the Prophet Daniel. In any case this mausoleum is attracting large numbers of pilgrims and tourists from many nationalities and religions and from all over the world.
