The Registan was considered the heart of the city of Samarkand in Uzbekistan during the Timurid Dynasty.
The word Registan actually means “sandy place” in Persian. It was used as a public square, where folks gathered to hear the proclamation of the royals. Today, it’s a real nice place to visit. You can even take a really cool photo of with those amazing inlaid mosaics with the most intricate designs ever.
