Mausoleum compound "Khodja Mashad" IX-XII centuries.

 

 

It is the unique monument of the oriental architecture. It is located in Saiyod village in Shahritus region. That mausoleum was built in the X century, originally it had only one central building. The archaic elliptical, not lancet arches were preserved. In XI-XII centuries new dome-shaped building was adjoined to the mausoleum, with by the dense decorative arcade in the facade. This building was richly            decorated by ornamented brickwork and terracotta fretwork in the style of Ismail Samanid mausoleum. The dome-shaped structure was connected with the first building by the portal, with the brick laid arch behind it. In the corners of the facade there are the towers-guldasta, and behind the mausoleum there were the vast yards with aivans and vaulted cells-hudjars.

The compound "Khodja Mashhad" has the most ancient structure among all known medreses.
