"Gur-Emir" in translation means "the tomb of the ruler."

The easily recognizable architectural composition, consisting of three famous madrasahs, glorified Registan Square all over the world. The Ulugbek madrasah (1417-1420) was the first to appear on the square, two hundred years later, the Sher-Dor madrasah (1619-1636) was erected opposite it, and the ensemble was completed with the construction of the Tillya-Kori madrasah (1646-1647).

(translated as "The Elder Wife", according to one of the legends, it was built by Timur's eldest wife, Saray-Mulk-Khanum) had a different name - the Friday mosque of Samarkand.

One of the most mysterious and unique architectural monuments of Samarkand is the Shakhi-Zinda complex, consisting of a string of graceful tombs sparkling with blue colors. Harmoniously woven into a lively and moving composition, mausoleums of different times are closely grouped along a narrow medieval street. Shakhi-Zinda consists of eleven mausoleums, which were built one after another in the 14th - 15th centuries.

A long 5-domed mausoleum building stretched on a high cliff of the hill, and the Siab River flows at the foot of the hill. The stretching of the building is directly related to the tombstone, which is 18 meters long and, according to legend, is constantly increasing.
