Description:
Der Registan (‚Platz des sandigen Ortes‘) in Samarkand ist einer der prächtigsten Plätze Mittelasiens. Er ist das Herz des antiken Samarkands. Das Ensemble von drei Medresen gilt als ein einzigartiges Beispiel der Kunst von Stadtbau und architektonischer Gestaltung des Hauptplatzes der Stadt. Die drei Medresen sind an der Westseite die Ulugʻbek-Madrasa (1417–1420), ihr gegenüber an der Ostseite die Sher-Dor-Madrasa (1619–1636) und an der Nordseite des Platzes die Tilya-Kori-Madrasa (1646–1660). (Wikipedia) The Registan was the heart of the ancient city of Samarkand of the Timurid Empire, now in Uzbekistan. The name Rēgistan means "sandy place" or "desert" in Persian. The Registan was a public square, where people gathered to hear royal proclamations, heralded by blasts on enormous copper pipes called dzharchis - and a place of public executions. It is framed by three madrasahs (Islamic schools) of distinctive Islamic architecture. The three madrasahs of the Registan are: the Ulugh Beg Madrasah (1417–1420), the Tilya-Kori Madrasah (1646–1660) and the Sher-Dor Madrasah (1619–1636). Madrasah is an Arabic term meaning school.
