Part of the ruin of the huge Bibi Khanum
Mosquie - built from 1399 to 1404 This is the main portal entrance that was 112
feet high - The dome appears behind the arch. The Mosque was 110 yards wide by
153 yards long and one of the largest in the world, but the building
construction methods - mortar - were insufficient - it decayed and then
suffered in an earthquake in 1897. The cupola dome was 66 feet in diameter, and
118 feet high. There are other smaller mosques in the complex. And across the
road is the Bibi Khanum mausoleum. But Bibi Khanum herself is probably a myth.
