Sher-Dor Madrasah In Registan Square

Sher-Dor Madrasah

The madrasah was decorated with the blue tiles

Shot at Registan Square in Samarkand, Uzbekistan.

The square was surrounded by the sublime Islamic architectures. The architecture in the photo was Sher-Dor Madrasah. Registan means 'Sandy place' in Persian and it was built by the Timurid dynasty.

To build such awesome architectures made a demand of much money. Although the city is located in an outlying region, it prospered as one of the major oasis towns. The oasis town could get a lot of money in the pre-airplane era.
