Photographer's Note

In Samarkand, I stayed in the hostel in the old part of the city, just behind the walls of the Timur Mausoleum. I noticed, that nearby was another dome. So. my last day I want to see what it was. it was a small mausoleum that looked rather uninteresting. But there was a girl playing with the cute cat. I came to see a cat. She asked me if I wanted to see inside. Well, why not, I had time. She took the keys and opened the door. We went inside and my jaw dropped. The interior was small but magnificent. I haven't read about it in any guidebook. later I found the information in Google:

Aksaray (Ak-Saray) Mausoleum is located in 30 meters to the south-east of Gur-Emir Mausoleum. Ak-Saray from Turkic means "ak" - white, “saray” – palace. It is memorial and religious building, built in the XV century in Samarkand.
