Registan was the name of the main (front) squares in the cities of the Middle East. The Samarkand square is the most famous registan owing to the renowned architectural ensemble of the XV-XVII centuries located on it; the centre of the costume is the Ulugbek Madrasah (1417-1420), the Sherdor Madrasah (1619-1636) and the Tillja-Kari Madrasah (1646-1660).
The ensemble of the three madrasahs is a unique example of the art of urban planning and a remarkable model of the architectural design of the main square of a city. In 2001, this ensemble and Samarkand’s other ancient historical buildings entered the UNESCO World, Heritage List.
The madrasahs were constructed at different times. The first was the Ulugbek Madrasah, erected in the period from 1417 to 1420 years by order of the ruler and astronomer Ulugbek, Timurlan’s grandson. Two centuries later, another two monumental buildings, the Sherdor Madrasah and the Tillya-Kari Madrasah, were built by order of the Samarkand ruler Bakhodur Yalangtush. Each of the three buildings shows its unique decor – the filigree patterns carved in the stone adorn the walls and portals. The blue domes of the madrasahs are made of burned bricks and faced with glazed tiles on the outside, which shine brightly in the sun from whatever side it is shining.
