The Registan in-person lived up to all the hype and on-line photos. It is a spectacular piece of history and architecture, restored to prime position. more »
Beautiful mosaic and buildings. I like the Sherdor Madtasah the best. Its gold ceiling is wonderf. It’s more beautiful if you can seethe Registan without cloud! more »
This place is simultaneously deeply magical and tourist-trappy. The architecture is stunningly unique and lavishly decorated, but I imagine that the visionaries who built these monuments would be appalled at the mercantilism that fills each and every nook and cranny of these rooms that were dedicated to study.
Such an amazing place! I fell in love since photo and were not disappointed when I saw in real. Nighttime is more beautiful than daytime.
