The old Korans that are on display are interesting. However, once you have seen 4 or 5 historic Mosques and Madrasas, all the others start to look the same. Having said that it's definitely enjoyable to visit this location. Some charge admission, others do not. Some have many vendors inside so you know it's all touristy.

Not much to it now. Worth a quick look if you're nearby but mainly contains small shops at the ground floor level. There are more interesting things to see if you've only got a short time here.

Thanks to majority guide books most travellers think that Tashkent is gray and concrete settlement. Well medrese of Barakhan at Khast Imam square is one the evidences this is not true. Architecture of Middle Tashkent is different from royal buildings of Samarkand or Bukhara, but still quite impressive.The structure's exterior is renovated, but renovation is done with quality. Inside is located interesting craft center. Behide one can find leftovers of Tashkent's Old Town.

Located in the city center at khast imam square , this Barak khan mosque was built in two stages in 15th and 16 the century. It Trapezoid structure is unique, Two courtyard surrounded by single story residential building (Khudjars). Decorated with brick and beautiful mosaic. There is hardly much things to do in Tashkent , this is one of them.

Very attractive buildings and I liked the tourist market with masters showing off their crafts. Worth a visit, walk around the old houses behind too to see the original city.

The complex comprises of the Barak-Khan-Madrassah, the Tillya-Sheik-Mosque, the Muji-Mubarak-Medressah.
The Muji-Mubarak-Medressah keeps one of the most important and sacred books of the moslems, the Osman Quoran from the 7th century, copied by Osman a son-in law of the Prophet Mohammed.
Originally this copy was kept in Medina and most probably was captured by Amin Timur and brought into his capital.

Built in the 16th century Barak-Khan Madrassah is no longer used for its original purpose, however, it attracts tourists’ and visitors’ attention for its well preserved architecture and plenty of artisan shops with some nice quality hand-made embroidery, paintings, ceramics, souvenirs and gifts (do not hesitate to negotiate the price). The famous Caliph Osman Koran that has been ensanguined as he was assassinated while reading it, is kept in one of the complex buildings. The area is worth visiting.

The oldest Koran, written probably in the 7th century,is a very impressive book and it was written on deer skin . In the same room there are other important manuscripts .
All the buildings in this area are worth visiting.

An important structure in the Hasrati Imam complex is the Barak-khan memorial which was built in the 16th century. The earlier student rooms are now occupied by souvenir shops selling ceramics, miniatures, scarves amongst other crafts. We too picked up ceramic plates from here. This is another important place to visit when in Tashkent.
