I liked that as all of the madrasas in Registan. That one is the one with a lot of gold paint inside as I remember.

A must as are all the surrounding madrasas. Beautiful, super-ornate and totally great. Finally one understands and sees the extent of opulence and artistry of ancient inhabitants.

The whole place is a pure ensemble of architecture and culture history. No questions about it, Samarkand is one of Must Visit Places while in Uzbekistan.
