Located next to the Dor-At-Tilyavat mosque the necropolis was going to be the burial site for all the Timur family. Dor Us-Siyodat means "House of Power". Emir Timur is, in fact, interred in a sumptous mausoleum in Samarkand and only his eldest son and another family member are buried there.
Reaching the necropolis is a hazardous affair. To reach it you have to travel through a building site crossing a 2 metre deep trench via a rotting plank of wood. Obviously the "Health and Safety" doctrine hasn't reached central asia yet! The photography fee covers both Dor Us-Siyodat and Dor At-Tilyavat.

We arrived at this mosque and tomb complex just after Friday prayers as a stream of men, including some old men in traditional dress, left. The mosque is simple and peaceful but not outstandingly beautiful. In Jehangir's tomb the frescoes are almost gone, with just a patch of blue high up to show you what the space must have once looked like. Meanwhile Timur's crypt was unlit and somewhat murky! However if you're in Shakhrisabz it is worth popping in here.

Our party of three took a day trip from Samarkand to go to Shakhrisabz. We picked up a taxi from outside the Registon supermarket (corner of Suzangaran and Registan streets) - we were quoted $20 per person return but it was a matter of moments to bargain down to $50 return for the three of us! The trip took about two hours - our driver was very careful - including a couple of stops at viewpoints en route. The scenery was stunning.

It is worth noting that they are in the process of digging up the whole of Shakhrisabz centre to turn it into a park, and down from the palace to the end of the bazaar is a dusty building site although the sights remain open.

Dor us-Saodat Complex aroused after the death of the eldest son of Amir Temur – Djakhangir (1376), whose mausoleum has dome ceiling in the shape of a cone. In the past, both complexes formed a single complex and were part of the main Shahrisabz necropolis. There is a tombstone of Djakhangir inside of the mausoleum.

The gravestone plate of Temur’s grandson – Sayid Akhmad which was discovered here, suggests that the necropolis was the burial place of Temurids and the aristocracy of the Barlas genus out of which Amir Temur originated.
