Ten years later after completion of the Sher-Dor madrasah, Yalangtush Bahadur launched a new construction of a combination of a madrasah and juma-mosque, which was subsequently named Tillya-Kari (1646-1660). This building completed the composite design of the Registan.
The interior of the mosque is decorated in the “kundal" style famous for its abundantly gilded ornamentation and background. In addition, the mihrab (the prayer niche showing the direction of Mecca) and minbar (a tribune for a preacher-imam) of the mosque were also gilded. The concentric relief paintings and gilt of the central hall were used to amaze visitors with its luxury and richness. This lavish gilt decoration gave the name to the madrasah- Tillya-Kari- which means “gold-covered”.
The outer and inner facades are faced with a brick mosaic and majolica with geometric, vegetative and epigraphical patterns. The massive wooden doors are decorated with a vegetative and epigraphical ornament.
