Gawhar Shad Madrasa and Mausoleum reviews
And this is must visit place in beautiful Herat. Walls on madrasah are very similar to Samarkand and Bukhara. Recommend with all my heart more »
Nice garden. The first Wednesday of year this garden is used by women and entering men is forbidden. Also a few minarets beside it are great and worth seeing. more »
