The mosque was colored by the beautiful tiles

When I entered into the courtyard, I found a beautiful blue mosque. The roof was painted in blue and the exterior wall was decorated with the blue tiles. This mosque stood in Registan and belonged to Tilya-Kori Madrasa. 'Madrasa' means school in Arabic.

The city of Smarkand is called 'The city of blue' because of its wonderful blue tiles and blue sky. The architectures in Samarkand are well worth watching.
