With its beautifully decorated iwans, this is a serene oasis just outside the main hubbub of Samarkand's centre. Easily walked, just follow the road from the Registan, it is well worth the 30 minutes to get there to also get an insight into 'real' Samarkand. And don't forget to cross the road and see the derelict Ishratkhona.

We sat down for some time at this beautiful place without the usual crowds. Nice place to rest in the shadow next to the pond and inhale the quiet atmosphere of this unique place. Don't miss to cross the street to explore the ruins of a former mosque. The less touristic side of Samarkand.

This delicately decorated mausoleum has a charm of it's own. Beautiful roofs, elaborately decorated pillars and a pool in the center can be seen here. this was the first place where the tigers were used on the door, much earlier than the Sher-Dor medressah.

After the disappointment of the over-restored central Samarkand sites, this place on the outskirts is a great consolation. It is a functioning madrasah (Islamic seminary) with an assemblage of buildings dating from the 15th to 21st centuries (the modern ones tastefully blending with the ancient), set around a pleasant pool surrounded by four ancient plane trees. The students are polite to visitors, and sitting in the pool listening to the wind rushing through the trees while the students go about their studies was the most pleasant thing I did in Samarkand.
