The great Movorounnakhr was founded on the initiative of Amir Timur who played an important role with his workmanship and fair policy in history from the beginning of the 14th century. The architectural heritage that belonged to Amir Timur and the Temurids’ period is wide ranging and multifaceted owing to the fact that this culture was extended over a large area in the 14th and 15th centuries. Amir Timur’s heritage that played a key role in his architectural activities is his inimitable and unique architectural monuments which have survived to the present day. Very few of the architectural old relics and monuments that were built by order of Amir Timur have actually been preserved to the present day. However, the manuscripts of the 15th century and the historians lived after that period testified that there were a great number of other architectural relics and monuments. These old relics and architectural heritage have not lost their values for centuries with their constructional designs and architectural uniqueness. There is not full historical information about who and how actually built these architectural complexes. Therefore, studying the history of architectural designs, collecting the data on the basis of analyzing archive materials and existing books on history of that period and leaving them to the future generations are one of the pressing problems in the world today.
