Palace Ak-Saray Reviews
An interesting site but the fact that it is now surrounded by manicured gardens detracts from the splendour. Everything around is too modern more »

We are visiting the impressive ruins of this Palace built between 1380 and 1404 during the reign of Tamerlane. The enormous size of the Palace were intended to impress foreign visitors. An inscription on the Portal quotes "If you have any doubts about our power, look at our buildings". The Palace was destroyed in the 16th century by the Emir of Bukhara, Abdullah Khan II. In 2000 the building was declared a world heritage site.
Set in nice gardens with other historical sites within walking distance. It is another statue but worth a look. more »
what a wonderful place to be! Beautiful historical site and lovely Uzbeki people!
Ancient Fortress.. Using cameras are charged within the palace complex...
This place is worth a visit when the two buildings were merged into one huge arch.
A bit far from Samarkand, not a must see as I shared on the status of Tamerlane who is on this site, I can't find that this place has particular interest. Especially if you do the round trip by bus in the day (much longer than in taxi). We see a ruin to impressive proportions and a gigantic statue, but nothing exciting at Samarkant.
Great place to visit and enjoy the medieval atmosphere to contemplate
