Inside Ulugh Beg Madrasah At Night
Asia

The Ulugh Beg Madrasa (Uzbek: Ulugʻbek madrasasi) is a religious educational institution in Samarkand, Uzbekistan. It was built by Ulugh Beg during the Timurid dynasty at the Registan in the heart of the ancient city of Samarkand.

The madrasa was built from 1417 to 1422. Some buildings at the Registan are very close to it in the west. This right angular madrasa has two floors of 56x81 meters. The facade is directed towards the main square, and the structure can be widely seen with its height of 16.5 m. Next to it there are gardens with various types of flowers and trees. The arch is 32 meters in height.
The building is crowned by an azure fluted dome. The exterior decoration of the walls consists of blue, light-blue and white tiles organized into geometrical and epigraphic ornaments against a background of terracotta bricks. All the patterns are designed in the Greek style. The dome has a bright blue color with deep rosettes and white spots. With the help of historical stained windows the room is illuminated during daytime.

More About Asia

Asia is the biggest continent on Earth, a darling little gem floating around in space.Hm, what is Asia? Who's in on it?China and India are safe bets for Asian nations. Korea, Japan, Thailand, you're fine.Europe? No. Europe would sort of be on the "Asian continent" if not for those pesky Ural mountains dividing things up in the middle, and then also the whole lineage of kings and wealth and nations and the EU and all that "give me my respect" stuff.Russia would probably be happiest as its own continent, so for now we'll leave it in "Eurasia" and just hope the natural gas supplies keep flowing.Pakistan and Afghanistan are dang close to Asia, but politically they show up in "Middle East" news stories an awful lot. Verdict: Eurasia.I guess we'll actually have to consider everything from Turkey on eastward to be "Eurasian", although the moniker seems overlappitory of the territory.The Asian economy is now officially raging like a wild furnace of lava that consumes everything in its path. Japan has had the largest individual economy in Asia for decades, but it is forecast that both India and China will outstrip Japan within twenty years.China is the largest holder of United States debt and is positioned to become the world's next superpower, provided that Godzilla doesn't return and decide to stomp everybody back into the Shang Dynasty.Text by Steve Smith.
