Description

Acrylic Fridge Magnet of Registan, Uzbekistan

Exhibited on the magnet above is a shot of the Registan in Uzbekistan. Registan is a plaza built in the middle of Samarkand. The word "Registan" means a sandy place or desert in Persian. In olden days, people used to gather in the Registan and listen to proclamations and seminars. The Registan was also considered a prominent place of Islamic studies, as it contains three famous madrasas.

Madrasas in the Registan

Madrasas means religious school. The three madrasas of the Registan are the Tilya-Kori Madrasa, the Sher-Dor Madrasa and the Ulugh Beg Madrasa. The Ulugh Beg Madrasa is the oldest of the three madrasas and it was set up in 1417 during the Timurid Empire. It was one of the most illustrious Islamic universities in the ancient times. The famous poet, philosopher and scientist, Abdurakhman Djami, also studied in Ulugh Beg.

The Sher-Dor Madrasa was built in 1619 during the rule of Yalangtush Bakhodur. It was designed by Abdujabor and has a beautiful mosaic door at its entrance. The Tilya-Kori Madrasa was established in 1646; it served as, both, a residential college as well as a grand mosque. It is a two-storey building and has a huge courtyard. All these madrasas hold special importance for Islamic scholars and historians.

Other Buildings in the Registan

Other prominent buildings set up in the Registan are Chorsu and the Mausoleum of Shaybanids. Chorsu is a trading dome located behind the Sher-Dor Madrasa. Mausoleum of the Shaybanids consists of the tombs of the Muhammad Shaybani and other men of the Shaybanid dynasty. Muhammad Shaybani captured Samarkand and freed it from the rule of the Timurids.
