Tamerlan’s Motherland

Talking about the motherland of Amir Temur, I could do nothing but also mention the special place, where this famous individual was actually born.

He was born in 1336 in Shahrisabz. He spent his childhood and teenage years. From the very beginning of his rulings, he gathered the best architects, who built variety of palaces, mosques and mausoleums.

The ruins you see above in the picture are all what is left from the palace “Ak Saray”. Its original height was 35 meters. Tamerlan ordered to write following phrase on that building: “If you doubt about our greatness, then take a look at our constructions! “
