... hit for another 3000 Sum photo permit, but find it hard to get a good shot because everything is oversized - you get a crick in the neck just from looking at the top of the front wall.

His original tomb was in Iran and it was given to the town here as a gift of good luck. The legend says his body grows about a half an inch per year so now his coffin is about 30 feet long. It was covered by a muslim cloth with Arabic writing.

On the “plus side”, Tamerlane brought skilled artisans and craftsmen from the lands he conquered and terrorized back to Samarkand to create what was for the time a spectacular city and centre ...
