Ulugbek Madrassah

The madrassah of Ulugbeg was under construction from 1417-1420. Its huge portal has an arch of 15m in width. The mosaic panel above the arch shows a symbolic sky with five and ten pointed stars. The madrassah had a platform for astronomical observations before Ulugbeg's observatory was built, and had fifty cells for one hundred students. Sheikh Khodja Akhrar and poet Djami were among the outstanding graduates of this madrassah. In the 20th century the northeastern and southeastern minarets were repaired, new domes were installed, and the portal arch and tympan were restored.
