Lake AydarkulYurt camp


Lake Aydarkul is an oasis in the desert, a wonderful blue expanse, lying in the gold frame of the desert sand Kyzyl-Kum. His fate is interesting. For a long time it lay all alone in the midst of solonchak lowlands. The water was quite salty, as evidenced by its name – Tuzkan (UZB Ace -. G). Lifeless were the shores of this doomed to a slow drying of the lake. However, in the spring of 1969 as a result of unusually high floods on the Syrdarya River water it flooded into Arnasay spill and headed west into the depths of sand filled the vast salt-marsh depression Aydar and united with the waters of the lake Tuzkan, turned it into a part of a huge body of water stretching for The southern outskirts of the Kyzylkum desert for almost 200 km. The waters of the Syr Darya breathed new life into a dying lake. Its surface is increased many times, water has become fresher, turned green shore, there are many fish and waterfowl. On the winding banks of new reservoirs, many shallow shallows and shallow lagoons. Among the bluish expanse of visible small golden islands – this large sand dunes were surrounded by water. Their shores were covered with sedge, a lot of birds settled on them. On some islets you can see colonies of large white pelicans. The ponds are rich in fish.

Almost opposite the Arch, across the square (Registan), is a very elegant, light and elegant ensemble of Bala Hauz. Just one block from here is the park, at the end of which there is a remarkable in its beauty mausoleum – the dynastic tomb of the Samanids (late IX – early XIV). The relationship and alternation of the brickwork masonry laid horizontally, vertically, at an angle, hewn in the form of discs and sockets, create a rich architectural cover. If the previous objects of the show are, as it were, interspersed with the modern building of Bukhara, then the central part of the “old” city is an integral architectural ensemble of the 16th-17th centuries. You will see it from the complex of Poi-Kalyan constructions (“the foot of the Great”), grouped around the highest minaret of Bukhara – Kalyan (the tower for convening for prayer). It was built in 1127. Its height is 47 m, inside – 105 steps leading to the top. On the right side of the minaret stands the majestic building of the cathedral mosque Masjidi-Kalyan, erected in the first half of the 15th century over the remnants of the medieval mosque of the 11th-12th centuries. Perestroika and renovation were carried out in 1514. Her high-rise dome, lined with a brick, painted in blue, argues with a bright blue of the sky. Opposite the mosque is the building of the Miri-Arab madrasah erected by the influential sheikh (head of the religious order) in 1535-36. As from the outside, so inside the building is decorated with colored mosaic. This is an active madrasah, where young men are trained for service in mosques. In addition to the Koran, they also study natural sciences. Near the religious center of Bukhara there were shops of merchants and workshops of artisans who sold their goods. The old bazaars of Central Asia were usually always covered. Galleries and domes were protected from the scorching sun rays in the summer, from the rain and snow – in the winter. Well preserved a number of closed shopping passages – tims and domed market buildings – the same. By the 15th century there was a dome of jewelers – Taki-Zargaron, by the 16th century – a dome of sellers of hats – Tilpak-Furushon, a dome was changing – Taki-Sarafon and Tim Abdullahana, intended for the sale of silk. In the covered passages of the city, acting today, you can buy wonderful products of applied art, which Bukhara was famous for.

The construction of the mausoleum began on the orders of Timur in 1403 over the grave of his grandson Mohammed Sultan, who was to become ruler of Maverannahr (Arab “beyond the river”, the territory between the Syrdarya and Amudarya rivers) after Timur’s death. However, the grandson died before his grandfather. Having set out on a campaign against China in 1404, Timur dies in the city of Otrar (South Kazakhstan). His body is transported to Samarkand and buried in the crypt of the mausoleum of Muhammad-Sultan. From that time on it became known as Gur-Emir – “Emir’s grave”. During the rule of Ulugbek (grandson of Timur), the mausoleum became a burial place for people exclusively from the Timurid clan.

In the decoration of the mausoleum, stone and wood carvings, stalactites and stained-glass windows are used, but blue-gold paintings occupy the main position. They covered all the planes from the bottom of the walls to the top of the dome. The artistic and historical significance of the Gur-Emir mausoleum determined the great and lasting interest of researchers. He devoted pages to all the general works on the architecture of Central Asia. The next architectural ensemble is the area of three madrasahs (the spiritual Muslim school) Registan (“sandy place”). This is the “heart” of Samarkand. Initially, it was the place of trading rows. Here were caravanserais, baths, shopping pavilions, shops of small artisans. Merchants from various countries brought here: merchants from Asia Minor and the Volga region, the Far East and Siberia, Persia and the Arabian Peninsula. During the rule of Ulugbek, Samarkand became a major scientific center of the East. At that time, not only the famous observatory is being built, but also the Madrassah of Ulugbek (1417-1420) in Registan Square. Only in the XVII century in front of it is built the Sher-Dor madrasah – “having tigers” (1619-1636).

It was the tallest structure in the East at that time. The facade and the dome of the mosque give an idea of the original splendor of the entire grandiose building, decorated with colored mosaics, carved marble, figurine, lined with bricks, and abundant gilding was used everywhere. In the courtyard you can see a marble lauch taken from a mosque (the music stand – the first half of the 15th century) for a huge Koran. It is covered with a script of Arabic. The tour continues with a show of the ensemble of Shah-i-Zinda mausoleums (XII-XIX centuries) – the greatest achievement of world architecture. From the entrance portal up the slope rise two rows of tombs, between which a corridor is formed. More than two dozens of mausoleums, mosques, funeral and office buildings make up this majestic memorial complex. The buildings are different in size, architecture, color, decoration. Here there is a bright colored mosaic, carved laces of walls and doors with strict geometric planes, almost devoid of facings.
