  • Though there were entirely too many souvenir vendors inside, but the gold tiling and ceiling decor in one area made it worth seeing. AMAZING.  more »
  • The inside of a mosque covered with golden color 360 degrees is great. The color is beautiful because it shines in gold than the ceiling and interior decoration of the mosque and the temple anywhere else. In addition, I was impressed with a clean restoration to here well because the state of the Medrese before the restoration is exhibited in the photograph.

  • "Covered with gold" (so translates the name Tillya kari) Madrassah-the central building of Madrassah complex on Registan Square. This latest of the three structures of the spiritual schools is distinguished by its rich interior decoration and larger than its neighbours. The word "gold" in the name is not simply present: the interior is richly decorated with not only mosaics but also gilding. The tour guides say that 15 kilograms of gold were spent during the restoration. As well as in the two other madrasahs there is a flourishing trade of various souvenirs, but besides it there is also a certain information component: old photos of famous buildings of Samarkand, for example.

  • Beautiful islamic architecture of 16-17th centuries. Inside a museum and lots of small shops with local arts and crafts.
  • "Lift up your head, look at the miraculous deeds of the most active and powerful being who wishes to make himself known. In the same way that you are not left to your own devices, so too, these phenomena and events have a master and a purpose.

  • Tilla-Qori Madrasah (1646–1660). “Tilla-Qori” is translated as “decorated with gold”. Beautuful building.
  • The newest of the three madrassas, and perhaps the most beautiful with the inside dripping with gold leaf. Wonderful place to visit and soak in the amazing restoration job they have done. There are many interesting before/ after photos within next to the gift shops.
  • Remarkable Madrassha with beautiful golden gliding inside.
