Registan square

Registan square is located in the center of Samarkand and surrounded by famous architectural ensemble which consists of three monuments: Ulugbek Madrasah, Sherdor Madrasah and Tillya-Kari Madrasah. This square throughout centuries gathered citizens to announce orders and news. The name of “Registan” is translated as “place strewed with the sand”. According to archives, exactly from this square Tamerlane’s army departed to the war. After the death of conqueror, the appearance of Registan was filled by madrasahs, which made this place a center of science. This ensemble just like many other sightseeings of Samarkand is included in the list of UNESCO World Heritage Sights.
