JOME MOSQUE OF KHODJA ZIYOVUDDIN Location 849

The Mosque of Khoja Zudmurod, also called "Khoja Ziyomurod", is one of the ancient places of worship in Samarkand. The current building was built at the end of the 9th century. During the restoration, bricks from the reign of the Sultan of the Seljuk Empire Ahmad Sanjar (1086-1157) were discovered. The legend says that Tamerlane brought the relics of Hazrat Jirjis (Saint George) here and buried them near the mosque. True, in Soviet times, the alleged burial place of the saint was demolished. There are myths among the people that prayer in this mosque leads to the quick fulfillment of good desires. Hence its name, which in translation means the quick fulfillment of desires.

In ancient times, the mosque was covered with a dome, after the destruction of which the building was covered with wooden beams. At the end of the 19th century, an aivan was built around the mosque, and a minaret rises next to the mosque.

In Soviet times, the mosque remained active. Its last restoration took place in 1992. It is located in the historical center of the city, north of the Registan Square.
