a marvellous place, very ancient and wonderful
The newest of the three madrassas, and perhaps the most beautiful with the inside dripping with gold leaf. Wonderful place to visit and soak in the amazing restoration job they have done. There are many interesting before/ after photos within next to the gift shops.
Remarkable Madrassha with beautiful golden gliding inside.
Great building of the ancient times
Coming to Uzbekistan and not visiting here is like coming on Moon and not taking a selfie (i know.. horrible analogy)
This is the most amazing of the 3 madras of the complex. There is inside the residential college an impressive mosque with golden astonish decoration. Worth to spend time in this place and admire the unimaginable details. The madras was constructed in 1646-1660 by the ruler Yalangtush Bakhodur.
The Tillya-Kori Madrasah was a remarkable building with a number of special features. One of them is a façade richly decorated with gilding, which gave the madrasah its euharmonic name. Furthermore, the madrasah territory includes a Cathedral Juma Mosque. The surfaces of its walls and vault as well as the madrasah façade were decorated with gold, applied by “kundale” technique (polychromatic colourwash painting with gilt ornamental ectypes). The mosque at the Tillya-Kori Madrasah was built specially for the students who were undergoing training there: they could pray every day, in the comfort of the institution.
