Photographer's Note

"Registan" means "sandy place" as the first Madressah was build in the 15th century at a spot where a river dried out. (Madressah was a Muslim high educational institution.)

Eventually all three Madressahs forming the Registan Square were completed in the 17th century, and the square became the centre of Samarkand life, with parades, festivals and bazaars taking place here.

Taking photo of Registan was my dream for many years.
