Bibi Khanum Mosque, Samarkand

Bibi Khanum Mosque, Samarkand

 

Tamerlane's awesome Bibi Khanum Mosque, completed just before his death, was once the largest mosque in the world - the cupola of the main building is a staggering 41m high and must have tested the engineering techniques of the age to their limits.  Largely destroyed by an earthquake in the 19th century, the mosque has been carefully reconstructed in modern times.
