14.- Samarkand, old city of Marakanda


From Hazrat Hizr mosque let us walk to Afrosiab Mount. On the picture you can see the reconstruction of the old city of Marakanda. Nowadays one can find only hills left of that town. Several groups of archeologists work on this sight. Their findings are displayed in the museum nearby. The most unique finding up to now is frescoes dated back to 6-7 century A.D. They are kept in the museum in special museum with climate

Well, this is Samarkand 's Virtual Tour last photo, I hope you enjoyed the visit.
