The tour covers the old part of Samarkand with two architectural complexes dating back to the 15th and 17th centuries on this real-time online walking tour. We start with the Bibi Khanim Mosque, one of the largest historical mosques in Central Asia, built at the beginning of the 15th century by the order of Amir Temur, also known as Tamerlane. We will see a huge marble book-stand made for Koran inside the Mosque.
Head to the next site Registan Square, in a street that was a major trading alley of Samarkand. The architectural complex consists of three religious schools called madrasahs, built in the 15th and 17th centuries, now home to mainly local craft and souvenir shops. All three madrasahs are decorated with various techniques, such as marble carving, wood carving, glazed tiles, majolica, and mosaic. We will enter the oldest yet the largest one in the complex.
You are welcome to ask any questions during and at the end of the tour.
