Brief information about Shakhrisabz:
Sung in the songs of the famous Uzbek ensemble "Yalla", the legendary Shahrisabz is a most beautiful city, located at the foot of the Zarafshan mountain range. The capital of ancient Sogd, the coeval of the "Eternal City" and the birthplace of the great commander Amir Tamerlane, are all Shakhrisabz, which means "Green City" in Persian.
The ancient name of the city is Kesh - this is the name Bobur used in his creations, when he tried to describe the beauty of a city. To convey how much a particular city is rich and developed, the famous descendant of Tamerlane compared him to Shakhrisabz.
The main attractions of Shakhrisabz:
Tamerlane loved this city very much, so he gathered the most eminent architects and architects of those times to reflect his feelings in monumental buildings. Thus, the efforts of the Iranian, Khorezmian and Indian architects in Shakhrisabz included the Aksaray Palace, the Dorus-Saodat dynastic tomb and the Darut-Tilavat memorial ensemble.
AKSARAY. The residence of the powerful Tamerlane in his hometown. Almost a quarter of a century the construction work was carried out, which resulted in a grand palace, grandiose in its scale, beauty and embodiment of advanced engineering thought. It housed several yards, a lot of living quarters and rooms for various receptions. In the interior decoration of the palace, golden azure was used, and white tiles were laid in the courtyards.
MEMORIAL COMPLEX DARUT-TILAVAT. Place of burial of the city nobility. On the territory of the complex lie the father of Amir Tamerlane, his spiritual mentor Sheikh Shamsiddin Kulola, descendants of his grandson Ulugbek. The ensemble is completed by the Kok-Gumbaz mosque.
DORUS-SAODAT DYNASTIC TOMB. The complex consists of the Crypt of Jakhongir, the mosque of Hazrat Imam and the crypt of Tamerlane. Two sons of a powerful ruler settled in one of the ensemble tombs. The walls of the room were adorned with sayings from the Koran. It was assumed that next to them, the sovereign of the great empire will also rest, but, as everybody knows, he is buried in the capital of the state created by him.
