  • It is a Theological Seminary viewed from the front of the Registan square, which is located on your right. Is the unusual architecture of Islam prohibit idolatry is a picture of a person's face, lion depicted in the seminary here. I thought, very visible to the lion and tiger.

  • Its characteristic dome is a light point, but the interior of the repair is worse, a bit of a pity. The 17 century has been very mathematical, and you can imagine how powerful it was when the business team got there.

  • Great historical building
  • Fantastic to hold the breath and back in time! Constructed in 1619-1636 by the ruler Yalangtush Bakhodur and the main architect Usto Abdujabbor. The architectural details are really impressive! Inside there are a kind of market that sell souvenirs and Uzbekistan typical clothes. The symbolism is also important and the lions are also in the banknote of 200 soms.
  • Breathtaking.
  • Nice structured Need maintaince Too many visitors
  • Sherdor means "with lions" as on the entrance portal lions with sun-face on their backs were depicted.
