Madrasah of Abdulaziz Khan, Bukhara, Uzbekistan

The madrasah was built in the middle of 17th century opposite to Ulugbek Madrasah and surpassed it in size and decor. Abdulaziz (died in 1681) was a member of Bukhara Astarhanid dynasty (1601-1747). This is a traditional madrasah with two floors of hudjras around the yard and a mosque on the central axis. The high portal was decorated with pictures of fantastic birds flying to the sun. Its semi-octahedral arch is filled with stalactites. Mosaic with characteristic motif of a blossoming bush in a vase makes external decor. Under-dome stalactite systems, complex 'sails' and various paintings decorate the interior.
