Photographer's Note

This is one of two ancient domes at the town of Chist. There is some debate as to their function. Some say they may have been mausoleums, while others think they were part of a larger complex comprising a mosque and medrassas (Islamic schools). The decoration is Ghorid and is similar to that adorning the Minaret of Jam (see earlier posts). Graves scatter the ground around the base of the domes.
