The original buildings were destroyed by earthquakes. This is a reconstruction devoted to selling tourists arts and crafts.

I enjoyed my visit watching skilled artisans at their work. Lovely trees and a peaceful place to sit. I liked the intricate wood working and fine detail of the paintings. High quality work can be purchased at reasonable prices.

This is one of the few places in Tashkent which is a must visit. It's picturesque and part of the Hazrat Imam complex. It's not a functioning Madrassa and has quaint shops inside. Plan to spend an hour in this complex
