In spite of all the weather disturbances the architectural and decorative monuments on show remains unperturbed.
The 3 madrasahs of the Registan in Uzbekistan are:
The architecture of this mosque resembles that of the Gothics. The lovely arch facing the square, the corners mounted by the high well-balanced minarets give a royal look to the madrasah. Mosaic designs and geometrical stylized ornaments decorate the entrance arch. The courtyard includes a mosque, lecture rooms with dormitory cells for the residential students. It was one of the best clergy universities where Ulugbek himself gave lectures specially on secular science.
- The Sher-Dor Madrasah (1619-1636) stands to the right of Tilla-Kari Madrassa. The name means Tigers. This monument was designed by architect Abdujabor. The symmetry of large and small rooms with exquisite mosaic carvings make this monument as one of the best architectural creations in Samarkand.
- The Tilya-Kori Madrasah (1646-1660) stands in the center. The name of this mosque means "Gilded". Primarily it was a training center for students, but also it played the vital role of grand mosque. It is a two-storied construction, vast courtyard surrounded by dormitory cells and four galleries along blocks. The main hall of the mosque is magnificently gilded.
