        The Other Historical site is Mausoleum of Tamerlane, one of the imposing conquerors in history, who made Samarkand beloved by poets and travelers. The majesty of architectural forms and lines and colorful mosaic designs make this mausoleum a unique monument of medieval architecture. The famous blue ribbed cantaloupe dome of mausoleum rises over the tin roof-tops in central Samarkand. A massive slab of green jade, under which Tamerlane was laid is said to be the largest such stone in the world.

Welcome to Samarkand

         Samarkand is the second largest city of Uzbekistan and is of the same age as Rome, Athens and Babylon- more than 25 centuries old.  Ancient Arab manuscripts refer to it as the “Gem of the East”, Europeans called it the “The Land of Scientists”. A majestic and beautiful city, Samarkand is the city of legends. When Alexander the Great first time saw Samarkand, he exclaimed
“I heard that the city was beautiful but never thought that it could be so beautiful and majestic”. 

        Yes, by any standards the city has an astonishing collection of ancient monuments. The turquoise domes of Samarkand is among the world’s most evocative architectural symbols. The most magnificent landmark in this old city is Registan Square- a traditional center of the city.

        The square is lined on the three sides by sparkling and turquoise tiled buildings- Ulugbek Madrasah, Sherdor and Tilla Qori. Madrasah in Arabic means the medieval universities. Inferior and exterior facades of the madrassah are decorated with ornament of glazed brick, mosaic and carved marble. The Square is considered an architectural gem representing the finest in Islamic Art. 


In the 14th century Samarkand rose in its southern uburb. Amir Temur (1336-1405), the governor of Western Chaqatai Ulus, made it his capital. For a few decades Amir Temur had formed a huge empire from India to the Mediterranean. Samarkand became a symbol of his new empire. Temur initiated huge construction works. New architecture with huge portals, high blue domes and refined majolica must have competed against Euroasian capitals and meant a birth of the Central Asian imperial style.


Registan became the central square of Samarkand in the 14th century. The word "Registan" can be translated as "a sandy place". Earlier there flowed a canal forming sand and silt deposits. Six streets crossed at Registan. In the time of Temur the square was used as a commercial and craft center and Ulugbeg made it a spiritual centre. Ulugbeg constructed a majestic madrasah and Sufi khanaka with a huge dome. By the 17th century old buildings of Registan had been in collapse and the governor of Samarkand Yalangtush-biy built Sher-Dor madrasah instead of Ulugbeg’s khanaka and later Tillya-Kari Madrasah.

Mausoleum of Khodja-Daniyar is situated on the northern slope of Afrasiab hill at the old wall near a curative source. According to leqends, Khodja Daniyar was a companion orKusam ibn Abbas who was considered a relative of the Prophet and one of the first Islamic preachers in Central Asia. The other legends associate Khodja Daniyar with Koran’s and Biblical prophet Daniyar (Daniel) whose remains were brought here by Amir Temur. A peculiar feature of Khodja Daniyar’s cult is that the saint continues to grow in his tomb. Owing to this the tomb was period­ically extended. The dome mausoleum above the long gravestone was built at the beginning of the 20th century.        

The Necropolis of outstanding Sunni theologian Imam Muhammad al-Bukhari (died in 870) was built near Samarkand. AI-Bukhari had phenomenal memory and analyzed thousands of hadiths-stories about the Prophet. His work resulted in summa of hadiths-"AI-Diami as­ Sahih" which was canonized in the 10 th century as the main hadith anthology in Sunni tradition. In the 16 th century the small mausoleum and mosque were built above the tomb of Imam al Bukhari. In connection with the 1225 th anniversary of Imam al-Bukhari and according to the decree of the government of Uzbekistan the new memorial complex was built in 1998 at the site of the old mausoleum. 


       Samarkand’s importance to the history and culture mankind is now being recognized by UN, UNESCO and WTO, which are helping to promote tourism to the region. As the government, who has made tourism a priority sector for development is continuing to invest hotels, airports, transportation and leisure facilities, service is becoming yet another of the country’s attractions.
As one the ancient poets said:




      But if you have seen buildings of Samarkanda, you will be enchanted by its magic forever.
