This is a typical itinerary for this productStop At:
Registan St, Samarkand, Uzbekistan, Samarkand 140164 Uzbekistan
This ensemble of majestic, tilting madrassas – a near-overload of majolica, azure mosaics and vast, well-proportioned spaces – is the centrepiece of the city, and arguably the most awesome single sight in Central Asia. The Registan, which translates to ‘Sandy Place’ in Tajik, was medieval Samarkand’s commercial center and the plaza was probably a wall-to-wall bazaar.
The three grand edifices here are among the world’s oldest preserved madrassas, anything older having been destroyed by Chinggis Khan. They have taken their knocks over the years courtesy of the frequent earthquakes that buffet the region; that they are still standing is a testament to the incredible craftsmanship of their builders. The Soviets, to their credit, worked feverishly to restore these beleaguered treasures, but they also took some questionable liberties, such as the capricious addition of a blue outer dome to the Tilla-Kari Madrassa.
Duration: 2 hoursStop At:
Bibi Khanym Mosque, Guzarskiy Lane, Samarkand 140164 Uzbekistan
The enormous congregational Bibi-Khanym Mosque, northeast of the Registan, was finished shortly before Timur’s death and must have been the jewel of his empire. Once one of the Islamic
world’s biggest mosques (the cupola of the main mosque is 41m high and the pishtak 38m), it pushed contemporary construction techniques to the limit. Slowly crumbling over the years, the mosque partially collapsed in an earthquake in 1897 before being rebuilt in the 1970s.
