Photographer's Note

The Khast-Imam complex in Tashkent is a recreated modern site built in the 1990s on an original site. It is a religious centre in Tashkent and a place for worship for Muslim pilgrims. It is situated in the old city area and surrounded by blocks of mud houses.

The ensemble comprises of the Barak-Khana Madrassah of the 16th century, Teleshayakh Mosque, part of which houses an important religious library, the 16th century Kaffal-Shashi mausoleum, which was built over the grave of Abubekr Mukhmmad Kaffal-Shashi, and the Imam al-Bukhari Institute.

The Complex sqaure becomes busy in the evening with the locals...children playing, women chatting, boys cycling & the grand-dads help flying kites :-)
