Pe Drumul Matasii in Uzbekistan 25. Madrese in oglinda: Ulugbek si Abdulazizkhan / On the Silk Road in Uzbekistan 25. Mirrored Maddrasah: Ulugbek and Abduazizkhan

The two madrasah I will present today have been built at a distance of aprox. 200 years. The first one was erected by Ulugbek, the grandson of Amir Timur (Tamerlane), on 1417. It was the first madrasah constructed by him, and the only surviving monument from the Timurides time. It is an example of good proportions and excellent design.

The second madrassah was constructed by the order of Abdulazizkhan, on 1651/52. Because he lost his throne in the same year, de decoration remained unfinished but still one can see the richness of decoration here. It is a luxuous building, influenced by Chinese architecture. This is the last construction of this size in Bukhara.



Sistemul kosh de a construi madrase  "in oglinda", pentru a le potenta valoarea arhitectonica si artistica, este caracteristic Buharei. Asa este si cazul celor doua madrase pe care vi le prezint astazi, construite la distanta de 200 de ani una de alta.

Ulugbek, nepotul lui Amir Timur (Tamerlan) a fost mai putin un conducator priceput, cat un astronom exceptional pentru vremea sa. Folosindu-i pe cei mai buni arhitecti ai timpului, Nadjmetdin Bukhari si
Ismail Isfagani, el a construit in 1417 prima sa madrasa, in Bukara. Este si singura ramasa in picioare din timpul dinastiei Timurizilor. Desi nu este mare, ea se remarca prin claritatea designului si excelentele sale proportii.
 Madrasa Ulugbek, 1417
Dupa mai bine de 200 de ani (1651/52), Hanul Abdulaziz a poruncit construirea unei madrase vis-a-vis de cea a lui Ulugbek. Pentru ca in acelasi an si-a pierdut tronul, decorarea madrasei a ramas neterminata. Chiar si asa se poate admira  ornamentatia bogata a portalului si luxul intregii cladiri. Este vizibila influenta chineza. Aceasta a fost ultima constructie de o asemenea grandoare, la Buhara.
