    Really impressive! The only penalty is the reconstruction that does lose charm. When you go to Registan you'll see these monuments

    Sherdor madrasa or "inhabited by tigers," could be a rather free translation. Beautiful, iconic, with those gorgeous on the cover and the star King Tigers. It is a masterpiece of Usto Aboujabbor, built between 1619-36. Beautiful Arabic aesthetics mottled with Arabic texts
