Registan Square

The Registan Square is the heart of Samarkand. It appeared as a centre of crafts and trade long before the Mongol invasion.

The word “Registan” means “sandy place”. The Registan ensemble consists of the Ulugbek madrasah (1417-1420), the Tillya-Kari madrasah (1646-1660) and the Sher-Dor madrasah (1619-1636).
Madrasah was a Muslim educational institution where clergymen, statesmen and scientists were trained. The ensemble of the three madrasahs is a unique example of town planning and an excellent model of architectural design of the main square of the city.
