  • Wednesday, September 27-its construction was ordered by the King in the mid 1600 Yalangtush Bahadur of the dynasty of Mongol origin of 1500 to 1800 Sheybanids time reigned in Uzbekistan. Characteristic of this madrasa (unlike the others that surround) is to have a large mosque with the interiors and the golden dome, which gives its name to the madrasa. In fact the name Tillya Kori translates as "covered with gold". Along with the other madrasahs of Registan also was inscribed on the UNESCO monuments of the country.

  • 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 place
