Dedicated to the Turco-Mongol conqueror Tamerlane and his sons and grandsons, Gur Emir Mausoleum lies within the ancient city. Built in the late 14th and early 15th centuries, the mausoleum features a mix of Persian and Mongolian styles, serving as a precursor for numerous Mughal tombs throughout central Asia--many of which were built by Tamerlane's descendants. Examine the elegant azure dome and elaborate entrance gate, decorated with various mosaics and carved bricks. Inside, observe the solemn monumentality adorned with geometrical ornaments on terracotta bricks and diverse muqarnas.

Splendid Muslim architecture and place to seek solace
Timur is a tyrant for the rest of the world. In Uzbekistan, he is the foremost national hero. Guess history is about who writes it. This is the mousoleum where Timur is buried. The outside is gorgeous. Elegant and clean design - not an over-engineered excess. The inside is breathtaking. Particularly the room with the tombs. I sat in a corner watching the locals and families come in and pray. Quiet moments that take you into the far far past.
