Samarkand, The Registan Square Madrasahs

The Registan Square is a real gem located in the very heart of the ancient city of Samarkand. There are three madrassahs on the square: Ulughbek, Sherdor and Tilla-Kori, that are the main sights of the city. They were erected by two rulers at different times. Ulugbek Madrasah was the first - it was built by order of Timur's grandson - the ruler and astronomer Ulugbek and built 4 years - the period from 1417 to 1420 years. And the other two madrassas - built two centuries later on the orders of another ruler of Samarkand Bahodur Yalangtush - Sherdor Madrassah ("Having a lion"), built in 1619-1636 years symmetrically Ulugbek Madrassah and Tilla Kori Madrassah ("trimmed with gold") - in the 1647-1660 years.
