Abdullah-khan madrasah

Abdullah-khan madrasah built in 1588-1590, is one of the most outstanding objects of Central Asian architecture.

The main principle of the structural building remained unchanged - the premises are located around the front yard. However, the construction is much more complicated: the main entrance has a tall portal which is linked to the wings with two-stored premises and the gallery on the upper floor.
Impressive size of the facade and the variety of the decorative ornaments grant the building with colorful and majestic view, in bright sun light, the cold tones of majolica plates (blue, green and white) shine very brightly. The doors of madrasah are designed with astonishing artistic input, gathered from separate parts of the tree with thin carvings all without a nail. Abdullah-khan madrasah is one of the biggest in Bukhara after Kukeldash and Mir Arab.
