Turkistan

The 14th century Mausoleum of Khoja Ahmed Yasawi in Turkistan, Kazakhstan. Arguably Kazakhstan's greatest historical monument and a UNESCO World Heritage Site, the Mausoleum was built in the era of Tamburlane the Great and is of the same architectural order as the great mausoleums seen in nearby Samarkand.
