Photographer's Note

Samarkand is a treasure trove of Islamic architecture and for many centuries, a major stop along The Silk Road and it’s a crossroad between Europe and Asia.
This is a closeup up view of turquoise fluted dome & truncated minaret of the huge 12th century Sher-Dor Madrasah in Registan square.

These vibrant tiles appear at every turn in Samarkand....
