My Mausoleum of Khoja Akhmed Yassawi

My Mausoleum of Khoja Akhmed Yassawi

I wanted to write this post about Mausoleum of Khoja Ahmed Yassawi in Turkistan city a long time ago. I am traveling to Turkestan city very often, more with my guests- tourists. But I do not get tired of being surprised every time by its grandiosity.

More than 600 years passed since the time of its construction by Timur the Great. It was his idea to construct new building instead of old one. Nomads did not ask him to do it. We love and respect our great Ancestor in any case. Still there is no any other building neither in our country, nor in the entire Central Asian region and, probably, all over the world.

Its sky domes look very beautiful and picturesque in clear weather from the distance, when you enter the city after the boring landscapes of the steppe. The Mausoleum appears at such moments as a spring with clean and cool water in a desert for caravan of the travelers in ancient times. On the plain steppe, where there are no large hills, except ancient burial mounds called by Kazakhs "Tobe", the Mausoleum is visible from all the sides. Pilgrims and tourists are still coming and coming...
