The Khoja Daniyar mausoleum is situated on the northern side of the Afrasiab hill, by the old Samarkand wall near the small Siab River.
The mausoleum was constructed by the Samarkand masters and is a five-domed modern building. Inside the structure is the gravestone of Khoja Daniyar (18 metres long), which occupies almost all of the inner room. Archeological research shows that prior to the construction of the mausoleum, the stone was under the open sky. Scholars suppose that originally the burial place was covered by river stones. Besides, historical data indicate that the grave was rebuilt since the sacred symbols were located on its upper part and thus showed the location of the prophet’s grave.
