Often overlooked, the UNESCO site of Shakrisabz is home not only to Amir Temur Empire, but also a host of historic mausoleums, mosques and the famed Ak-Sarai Palace.

Uncover the beginning of the Timurid Empire, who once ruled across Persia and Central Asia. Visit the understated mausoleums and mosques in the city, all which have had a profound influence on the architectural styles across Central Asia.
