Photographer's Note

Bibi Khanoum (Timur's wife) mosque and shrine lies just near Siob bazar. Another place to see early in the morning in Samarqand.

This monumental mosque, built in 1399-1405, and already severely degraded in the following centuries, fell into ruins during the 1897 earthquake. Its reconstruction began in 1974.
