"Sher-Dor: the main lecture room" Top 5 Page for this destination Registan Tip by Elisabcn
Registan, Samarkand: 51 reviews and 137 photos
This was the main lecture room in Sher-Dor Madrasah, used for special occasions with teachers coming from other universities of the world. The decoration was very rich and impressive. During Soviet times it was used as a podwer magazine. There was an accident and the explosion and fire damaged very bad this room. Unesco decided not to restore it in order to show the original decoration.
Nowadays it's like a showroom where you can buy the finest carpets of the World. It is not a very appreciated place. If tourists are not interested in carpets they don't come inside but take only 5 minutes, it's worth to see it!. Maybe it's the only original and untouched place in all Registan
