Tilework, Gur-e-Amir gate

Tilework, Gur-e-Amir gate

From Astana, Tim went on to Uzbekistan and took a train to Samarkand on Saturday.

This is Gur-e-Amir, the mausoleum of the Asian conqueror Timur (also known as Tamerlane), which also hosts the tombs of his sons, grandsons and teacher. Construction of the earliest part of the complex started at the end of the 14th century and of the mausoleum itself in 1403.
