  • Samarkand is a place echoing from history and visiting it today is still an awe inspiring experience well worth undertaking. At the Regestan in Samarkand there are three Madrassahs in close proximity ...  more »
  • It is within the complex of the Registan square. What a wonder like this? The building, façade and interior are precious. Compulsory visit!

  • 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.
  • Coming to Uzbekistan and not visiting here is like coming on Moon and not taking a selfie (i know.. horrible analogy)
  • Great building of the ancient times
  • Amazing culture.
