Shah-i-Zinda Samarkand
For those wanting to explore further, there is a path up to the cemetery on the adjacent hills overlooking the entire complex - it also has good views to the giant Bibi Khanym Mosque.
The Bibi-Khanum Mosque, the Regestan with its three Madrassahs, the mausoleums at the Shah-i-Zinda, the ancient site at the Afrasiyab with its ancient wall frescoes all make for a spectacular few days of discovery...

Registan Samarkand
This site has been lovingly restored to its glory, and it is worth visiting for enough time to linger, and to return in early morning or evening, when they are lit up.
Impressive by its size alone, this is complemented by the details & opulence of the three separate buildings and superseded by the view on the full set.

Gur Emir Mausoleum Samarkand
This amazing religious building mausoleum and Madrassah built by Timurlane for his favourite grand son is just a beautiful piece of art as well as a very important historical landmark
Situated a little further from the other monuments this historical site has the most beautiful entrance arches and dome which is really beautiful to view at night when illuminated.

I totally appreciated it so you can also enjoy the view without all people and still have an option to take photos.
The site apart of the Hazrati Imam complex, which has several other madrasahs on it.
Mohammed Amin Madrassah Khiva
... the place, and you are busy looking at the craftsmen and the funny furry hats and all the other wonderful sites and scenes in this colourful you realised that you've just walked past this icon without realising.
It is highly recommended that you also view it at sunset from the Terrassa Cafe’s rooftop terrace.
Pakhlavan Makhmud Mausoleum Khiva
Beyond the asthetics the mausoleum is a site of pilgrimage with a Iman who recites a verse of the Koran when requested by a pilgrim.
The admission was approx $US1 and the ticket office lady was most enthusiastic that we go and view..wow.

The concentric layers of blus tilework are absolutely stunning and this must be Khiva's most recognisable landmark!
