Gur Emir Mausoleum included to list “Pearls of Commonwealth”


Gur Emir Mausoleum in Samarkand city of Uzbekistan was included to the list of sights “Pearls of Commonwealth”.

The corresponding decision was adopted by the Interparliamentary Assembly of member-states of the Commonwealth of Independent States (IPA CIS). The IPA CIS announced 2014 as a year of tourism and published a list of sights, which the citizens should visit in the CIS member states.

The IPA CIS said that the list of sights “Pearls of Commonwealth” was developed to tell about tourism sights of the CIS and help to promote tourism exchange.

The assembly said that the list includes only few sights, but they are worth to visit and familiarize with them.

Gur Emir Mausoleum (translation – grave of Emir) is located in Samarkand. Amir Temur, his sons and grandsons were buried at the Mausoleum.

The Mausoleum was constructed for Muhammed Sultan, a grandson of Amir Temur. Muhammed Sultan died in 1403.

Amir Temur died during a great Chinese campaign and was buried in Gur Emir Mausoleum. The remains of Seyid Berke, a spiritual teacher of Amir Temur, were also reinterred there.

The mausoleum was finished by Mirzo Ulugbek, another grandson of Temur, after the eastern gallery and southern funeral structures had already been built.

In the 15th century, one more significant cleric was buried in Gur-Emir. He is deemed to be Seyid Umar, the son of Bukhara sheikh Amir Kulal.
