The Surviving Legacy Of Asia’s Most Brutal King

Tamerlane - one of the most brutal monarchs in Asian history who left many valuable legacies to humanity.Tamerlane was the ruler of West Asia, Central Asia and South Asia in the late 14th century, creating the Empire. and the Timurid dynasty. He is also one of the four most brutal and bloodthirsty kings in Asia (along with Qin Shihuang, Vo Tac Thien and Genghis Khan). During the creation of his empire, Tamerlane the Great killed about 5% of the earth's population by beheading, burning or burying it alive. However, behind the massacres, this cold-blooded king has left a huge cultural legacy that exists today. 25 years after independence, Uzbekistan made the controversial decision to honor him as the greatest national hero, while at the same time restored the architectural works of the Timurid dynasty. Samarkand (Uzbekistan) was chosen by Tamerlane as the capital city, built a superficial marble palace, mosque, mausoleum, towering towers and giant dome, decorated with blue stones sophisticated with hundreds of years of history

Shown is the tomb of Shah-i-Zinda, built between the 11th and 19th centuries, the resting place of Tamerlane relatives and, according to legend, the cousin of the prophet Mohammed.

The Mosque in Samarkand was built on a huge scale, typically Bibi Khanum (photo). This place was built by Tamerlane after the campaign in India in the late 14th century, with 450 marble columns and mobilized nearly 100 elephants in the process. Tamerlane's empire stretches from Uzbekistan, India, Turkey, Russia to Arab countries, but the center of power lies in Registan, Samarkand. It used to be the area to transmit royal messages and carry out public executions. However, it has now been renovated into a venue for major events and music festivals. Samarkand is a city of domes with sophisticated architecture. This makes a mark and makes Samarkand become a UNESCO World Cultural Heritage Site
