"Street of Tombs" Gur Emir Mausoleum Tip by RB_Oakes
Gur Emir Mausoleum, Samarkand: 23 reviews and 61 photos
Where Timur, Ulugbek and many others are buried. Timur of course being Tamerlane, and Ulugbek his grandson - known more for being one of the finest astronomers of the middle ages than his skills as a ruler. The mausoleums for these two you'll need a guide and a few extra sum to see, but there are many others. General admission is 2000 sum, 1500 for students (and a lot less for Uzbeks). The tilework and architecture here is spectacular.
