  • This is Madrasa, which was built to thank Urg Bek for his education in Bukhara. Across the street is Madrasa, built by Abduldis Han, whose pastel colors are beautiful. It is the oldest madrasa built by Urg Bek.

  • The oldest mosque in Central Asia. Built by Ulug Beg, famous astronomer and grandson of Tamerlano. The entrance stands out for the magnificent ceramic torch cordon that frames it. The decorations of the facade reflect the passions of its client, primarily stars, but also sacred inscriptions that incite study and new knowledge.

  • A very dramatic architecture. Very imposing and the small shops inside make it a very lively place.
  • Oldest Medressah in Central Asia. Built in 1417, it became model to many others. This one is one of the three that were built by Olugbek. The other two are found at Gijduvan and in Samarkand. It was bombed by the Soviets in 1920s.
