Barak Khan madrasah

Built in the XVI century as an Islamic school, Barak Khan madrasah was erected on the initiative of Mirzo-Ulughbek’s grandson – Nauruz Ahmed Khan, who was called “Barak Khan”, which means “lucky”.

On the territory of the madrasah there are several mausoleums. One of them belonged to Suyunchkhodja Khan, who was the first ruler of Tashkent from the Sheibanid dynasty. The second one was erected over the burial place of Barak Khan himself, who was later reburied in Samarkand.
