Samarkand is one of the most ancient cities in the world. He found states and peoples that no longer exist. Samarkand flourished during the reign of Tamerlane. He made the city the capital of his empire. In addition, many architectural beauties of the district were created during that period. The followers of the ruler from the Timurid clan continued his work.
UNESCO’s high assessment can eloquently tell how successful they have been. Several architectural complexes are included in the World Heritage List at once. Mausoleums and mosques, even erected at different times, look harmonious. And the Siab bazaar, it seems, has not changed at all in six centuries of existence. Registan Square deserves special attention – “a place covered with sand”. This is the pride of the entire Middle East.
