  • i visited here for three years ago. .i have good memorial from old khorezm i suggest to any body to see this place.
  • Known as the pearl of Konye-Urgench, the Turabek Khanum Mausoleum sports beautiful geometric patterns on its inside dome. No one seems to know who is buried here, but the mausoleum is dedicated to the daughter of a Mongol Leader. Turabek-Khanym was a real historic figure, a Mongolian princess, the favorite daughter of the governor of Golden Horde - Uzbek-khan and the spouse of his deputy in Khoresm Kutlug Timur. She was canonized and declared a saint . Turabek-Khanym promised to master Gulgardan, who was in love with her, to marry him if he constructed her a building the finest on the Earth. Gulgardan worked hard: the mausoleum he built, which later become a tomb of Sufi kings and her own. But the proud beauty did not fulfill her promise and preferred the governor of Khoresm Kutlug Timur. The deceived master could not cope with his disappointment and threw himself from the top of the mausoleum. Long time ago above the building on a high drum with twelve apertures there was a dark blue glazed tabernacle. Unfortunately, it cannot be seen now: the structure was heavily damaged. But the tomb of Turabek-Khanym has always been the center of mass pilgrimage. Must visit.
