      Visited the Registan Complex

      The Registan was only about a kilometer walk from our hotel. The sky was blue and temperature hovered around 26C. Yes we were awe struck at the sight of the three medressas making up the Registan. The sheer variety in tile work and different but matching combinations of shades and color. Mind blowing. How ...
