What to Expect
Itinerary
This is a typical itinerary for this product

Stop At: Gur Emir Mausoleum, Samarkand Uzbekistan

Our professional guide will wait you from railway station and start excursion you visit to Gur Emir Mausoleum The beautiful portal and trademark fluted azure dome of the Gur-e-Amir Mausoleum marks the final resting place of Timur (Tamerlane), along with two sons and two grandsons (including Ulugbek). It's a surprisingly modest building, largely because Timur was never expecting to be buried here.

Duration: 1 hour

Stop At: Registan St, Samarkand, Uzbekistan, Samarkand 140164 Uzbekistan

You continue tour to Registan square The Registan, which translates to ‘Sandy Place’ in Tajik, was medieval Samarkand’s commercial centre and the plaza was probably a wall-to-wall bazaar. The three medressas 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.

Duration: 1 hour

Stop At: Bibi Khanym Mosque, Guzarskiy Lane, Samarkand 140164 Uzbekistan

Bibi Khanym mosque situated near of Registan square The enormous congregational Bibi-Khanym Mosque, northeast of the Registan, was financed from the spoils of Timur's invasion of India 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 or entrance portal, 38m), it pushed contemporary (14th century) construction techniques to the limit, so much so that the dome started crumbling even before construction had finished

Duration: 1 hour

Stop At: Shah-i-Zinda, Samarkand Uzbekistan

Samarkand’s most moving and beloved site is this stunning avenue of mausoleums, which contains some of the richest tilework in the Muslim world. The name, which means ‘Tomb of the Living King’, refers to its original, innermost and holiest shrine – a complex of cool, quiet rooms around what is probably the grave of Qusam ibn-Abbas, who is said to have brought Islam to this area in the 7th century. The most stunning Timurid-era tilework dates from 14th and 15th centuries.

Duration: 1 hour

Stop At: Ulugbek Madrasah, Registan Square, Samarkand 140164 Uzbekistan

The remains of Ulugbek’s 15th-century observatory is one of the great archaeological finds of the 20th century. Ulugbek was probably more famous as an astronomer than as a ruler. His 30m quadrant, designed to observe star positions, was part of a three-storey observatory he built in the 1420s. All that remains now is the instrument’s huge curved track, unearthed in 1908.
