Today I would like to bring your attention to the very center of Samarkand city, the symbol of it – Registan Square. Consisted of three almost as duplicates buildings, Registan has been the center of all activities in this city since history.
The buildings were formally madrasahs, constructions of which were started in 15th century. The initiator of the first madrasah was Ulugbek, the great leader and one of the first scientists of astronomy in history. Madrasah, the Islamic institution, was full of students not only from the city itself, but also all over the world.
Later on the other buildings started serving as mosques. Nowadays, this square is a-must-see place for each tourist. Besides this, one of the biggest music festivals, called “Sharq Taronalari” (Eastern melodies) are also held here.
