Mazlumkhan Mausoleum

Mazlumkhan Mausoleum

The Khorezm khan planned to build something magnificent, beautiful, so that for centuries this construction would be associated with his name. He sent messengers in the machinations of masters who could surprise the ruler with his skill. A young man was looking for who promised to build the most beautiful building. Day after day, the architect worked, raising everything above the wall of the building and once noticed a beautiful girl. At first glance, her boy fell in love, but could not wait for reciprocity. It was the proud daughter of the ruler, who over and over again rejected the young man and did not pay attention to all his declarations of love.

Once a girl, fooling around, told the young man that she would fall in love with him if he fell down from the walls of the building he had built. Without a second's hesitation, the young man jumped down and ... died. At that very second, the girl understood the whole power of love, for which a man was ready for anything. Unable to bear remorse for her act, the girl also committed suicide.

This is all a tragic legend, but the girl was called Hansula, and her body, indeed, was buried in the mausoleum. This is the first burial site, which later turned into a necropolis. In the underground hall, 2 more burials were discovered. Time did not spare the mausoleum and part of its roof and walls collapsed. Later, a new building and a complex of related buildings were built over it.

The main hall has several niches and an arch decorated with a beautiful pattern. The arch leads to the small hall. The dome has the shape of an octahedron and is painted with a heavenly color. Tentatively, the building was built in the 12th century.
