Architectural Complex Shakhi – Zinda (XI-XV centuries) – Where royalty and noblemen have been buried.

Visit the Mausoleum of Prophet Daniel – The prophet Daniel is revered by three world religions.

The Observatory of Ulugbek (XV century) – Ulugbeks scientific works have been created by the unique observatory he built in Samarkand.
