Islamic art of Madrasah Ulugbek, Samarkand

Selected for Google Maps and Google Earth

The square-shaped courtyard includes a mosque lecture rooms and is fringed by the dormitory cells in which students had lived. There are deep galleries along the axes. Originally, the Ulugbek Madrasah was a two-storied building with four domed darskhones at the corners. The madrasah was one of the best clergy universities of the whole Mouslem Orient of the 15th century.

Against tourists inside the first floor there are a tourist shop in the picture, women are working in the shop.

I like the light in the back, but maybe the photo would be better if these two girls are not so much underexposed...

Anyway, LIKE :)

Have a nice Sunday... Sanja

I have read about Samarkand. It's an impressive place full of history and the preserved market square.

Well done, ssSUH!

(^^* ‘google’ revealed a face that they're the opposite. an invasion of one's privacy?

Deliberately shot in silhouette in the shade was up-road pictures.

The face pictures are kept exposed to normal. (*^-^)

Thank you, sankos for your very interest and kind comments.

2011 August 25 to August 30 of the picture that is outside the Registan Square Music Festival is held in the world.

I was very busy preparing for events.

I went to a vacation during one weeks last week.

1997년부터 2년에 한 번씩 Uzbekistan의 오래된 도시 Samarkand의 중심 Registan 광장(위 사진의 바깥 쪽)에서는 ‘국제음악축제’ 분위기로 도시 전체가 한창 행사준비로 들썩이고 있었는데 지난주에 이곳을 다녀왔습니다.

8월25일부터 30일까지 5박 6일 동안 열리는 Samarkand Music Festival 인 '동방의 선율'은 동양과 서양의 접경지역에서 벌어지는 월드뮤직 페스티벌로서 그 권위와 역사가 있다고 하는군요.

이 축제는 전 세계 40여 나라에서 참여하여 경연 방식의 가창대회, 자유공연, 전통음악 관련 학술행사, 폐막식 등으로 구성되어 있습니다.

30일 폐막식에는 각국의 심사위원으로 구성된 심사위원단의 심사에 따라 참가팀의 순위가 발표된다. 평소에는 쉽게 접근하기 힘든 나라의 민속공연도 볼 수 있다고 합니다.

Thank you, starman79 for your very interest and kind comments.
