MADRASAH BARAK KHAN

MADRASAH BARAK KHAN


The madrasah Barak khan was constructed in 1502 by order of governor of Tashkent - Barak khan in honor of whom it has received its name. The madrasah is on a place of burial of grandson Ulugbek Suyunidj khan and one of his relatives, whose name isn't known.

The mausoleum Anonymous is one of old parts of madrasah. It was constructed in honor of unknown Timurid by Sheikh Hodji Akhror Valiy. This mausoleum is at once behind entrance portal on Southern part. Its original form remained only on the southern facade of this building.

More fundamental ancient construction is a mausoleum of Suyunidj khan. Building consists of four angular hudjras and cross-shaped central hall.

As major construction material for madrasah of Barak khan served fragmentary brick. Facades of building have decorative furnish only on its main objects. There is a portal, entrance peshtak (frontal part) of madrasah and a mausoleum dome of Suyunidj khan. This dome was destroyed in 1868 during earthquake. In history thee is kept data that blue tiles served as covering for skouphos domes, and ornament of dome drum was starry girikh with drawing from octahedral stars, executed in mosaic equipment. Therefore mausoleum carries a name Kuk Gumbaz that in translation means –Dark blue dome. 

On the basis of pictures of the end of the nineteenth century which remained and reached up to now, decors of drums and domes of both mausoleums and also decorative furnish of madrasah entrance peshtak were restored.
