Durut Tillavat Complex
Shakhrisyabz is one of the most ancient and famous city of Uzbekistan. Greatest complex is located in the center and was built in 14-16 centuries.

The man after whom the mausoleum was named, was the mentor of Amir Temur, his name was Shamsiddin Kul. Shamsiddin died in 1370, until he used the reverent attitude and respect for himself. In place of his burial built mausoleum which later became one of the first buildings of the complex.
The complex stands on a platform height of three meters, leads to the entrance ramp, next to whom in the past have been installed, iron and copper fur-bearing.
In 1935 began the construction of Kok-Gumbaz Mosque, which translated means "Blue Dome". The mosque was built not far from the mausoleum Kul, but she was one of the main structures of the memorial. The portal shows that the mosque Ulugbek created in the name of the memory to his father Shahrukh. People were impressed with the size of structures, since one of its domes reaches 46 meters. After 3 years Ulugbek builds over the graves of Seids mausoleum and called it Gumbazi-Seyidan, which translated means "Dome of Seyidov"
