Picture of Tilya Kori Madrasah in Samarkand, taken during our tour in Sept,10.
The highlight of the Tilya-Kori Madrasah is its mosque, intricately decorated with gold to symbolize Samarkand`s wealth at the time it was built.
It was not only the place of training students, but also it played the role of grand mosque. It has two-storied main facade, vast courtyard fringed by dormitory cells with four galleries along axes. Mosque building is situated in the western section of the courtyard. The main hall of the mosque is abundantly gilded.

Hi Ranjan. A beautiful photograph. It reminds me of my stay in Uzbekistan two years ago. The church architecture is there really something special. Well done. A remarkable photo. Rgds wolfgang.

This photo made in this mythical city is sublime. The framing of the architecture is remarkable. It is a magnificent monument. The light, the colors, the neatness, are excellent. Congratulations.
Have a nice day

buona l'inquadratura frontale e anche se manca un pizzico di sharp, l'immagine presenta bene il luogo con la bellezza della sua architettura,

One of the countries I would like to visit.
We've read so much about Samarkand from history books. Wonderful details on the tiles of the madrasah. I wish you had sharpened a bit...a WS done, if you don't mind!

Hi Ranjan !
I`m missing some sharpness here,but it`s a fine shot of this wonderful architecture.

Beautiful Ragestan Square unknown to the outside world, a colorful shot and nicely crop with tremendous detail in vivid colors to draw the eye. Though I feel the exposure treatment is done correctly under harsh light condition, early morning and late afternoon will produce a better pleasing image without hard shadows. Nevertheless it's a nice shot. Congrats
