  • It is within the complex of the Registan square. What a wonder like this? The building, façade and interior are precious. Compulsory visit!

  • It is a seminary located in the middle of the Registan square. Interior is very nice decorated with gold, will be overwhelmed by it.

  • In fact there is a shadow of the Indian architecture, and this beautiful school is a great work. At night, light and light make the building taste more clear. The guards ask if they want to take you up to the second floor XD

  • The Tillya-Kori Madrasah was a remarkable building with a number of special features. One of them is a façade richly decorated with gilding, which gave the madrasah its euharmonic name. Furthermore, the madrasah territory includes a Cathedral Juma Mosque. The surfaces of its walls and vault as well as the madrasah façade were decorated with gold, applied by “kundale” technique (polychromatic colourwash painting with gilt ornamental ectypes). The mosque at the Tillya-Kori Madrasah was built specially for the students who were undergoing training there: they could pray every day, in the comfort of the institution.
  • This is the most amazing of the 3 madras of the complex. There is inside the residential college an impressive mosque with golden astonish decoration. Worth to spend time in this place and admire the unimaginable details. The madras was constructed in 1646-1660 by the ruler Yalangtush Bakhodur.
  • Great building of the ancient times
  • Coming to Uzbekistan and not visiting here is like coming on Moon and not taking a selfie (i know.. horrible analogy)
  • Amazing culture.
