In the south-west of Shakhrisabz there is the Dorus Saodat burial complex. Centuries-old plane trees grow around the mausoleum. This is the tomb of the Temurids. The mausoleum consists of Jahangir's crypt, Hazrat mosque and Temur's crypt. His second son, Omar, is also buried here. Limestone slabs, from which the facing of the premises and arched niches were made, were decorated with texts from the Koran, glorifying the triumph of eternity and the frailty of life on Earth.
The tomb, intended for Temur himself, was built near the tomb of Jakhongir. Now it is empty, the emperor was buried in Samarkand.
Memorial Dorus Tilovat. These are the tomb of Shamsiddin Kulol, the Gumbazi Seyidon mausoleum and the Kok-Gumbaz cathedral mosque.
Gumbazi Seyidon - Dome of the Seyids - a mausoleum for Ulugbek and his descendants began to be attached to the complex much later. The building is small, regular in shape and graceful proportion. Of particular interest is the entrance to the building - a door decorated with deep carvings.
The cathedral mosque Kok-Gumbaz, which completes the logical idea of the entire ensemble, was built on the foundations laid in the pre-Mongol period.
Throughout his life, Temur did not leave his homeland without attention, in this city he had his residence and even at the zenith of fame, when he managed to create a great empire, Amir Temur came to his beloved city, in which he spent his childhood and youth.
One of Temirlan's descendants, the founder of the Baburid dynasty, Babur, wrote that Tamirlan made a lot of efforts so that his contemporaries called this city "the foot of the throne." Famous scientists and theologians came here from all over the world, the city received messengers from various countries and cities, such as China, Egypt, Castile, Genoa, Byzantium.
The city was built by the best architects who embodied traditions of different countries in their masterpieces of architectural art. It was here that the monumental style was first laid, which determined the peculiarity of the Central Asian architecture of the 14-15th centuries. Until now, not all of its monuments have survived, but they are so unique that they are included in the UNESCO World Heritage List.
