I really don't know to much about this building itself, however there is an interesting story about the complex that it is in. The comples is from the 17th century, when the Emir's wife complained about his frequent trips away and his lack of caring for her and she flet that she never received anything of value from him. He asked his architect to take one of his wife's earings, sell it, and build whatever he could with the proceeds. What he built was this wonderful complex. The Emir returned to his wife and told her "with just one of your earings I was able to build this entire complex..."
Also, notice that the trees surrounding the pond were planted in 1477!!!
Directions: In the Lyabi-Hauz Complex
