Mechet Khazrat Imom

Apparently on the site of Khazrat-Imam Mausoleum there once was a building, subsequently destroyed, in whose thick corner pylons the mausoleum was built in. Conical forms of tent-like dome, the base and other architectural elements evidence the participation of architects from Khoresm in the construction of the Mausoleum. The main portal decorated with huge pylon is oriented westward to face the Dorut-Tillavat ensemble. The pylon is covered with mosaics of glazed bricks. The most remarkable peculiarity of the Mausoleum is its top consisting of three domes. The inner dome covered with ganch stalactites serves a decorative function. Above this dome there is a load-bearing structural dome supported by the arched pendentives. The third tent-like dome resting on the faceted drum rises to a height of 27 metres. The eastern part of the mausoleum still bear clear traces of two-storey extentions and walls – the ruins of a construction that has not survived.

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.
