Tashkent city is rich in its long history, traditions and culture. Not all architectural structures survived to our times, but most of them still adorn the city with their beauty. One of these objects, the madrasa of Abdulkasim Sheikh.
Madrasah was erected in the 16th century, it was a whole one-storey complex, with a bath, a mosque and an educational institution. The complex was located in Yangi Mahalla, even then it was a common social center. Later in 1864 the building had to be restored, at the same time the 2nd floor was built. Already in our time, the State Chamber "Oliy Majlis" was built next to the madrasa. Both buildings complemented each other, but the old building looks more attractive than its neighbor.
Each room was painted with quotations from the Koran, having their own promise of piety and hospitality. Almost nothing remained of the murals, due to the careless care of the walls of the school. Now in each room there are craftsmen and craftsmen. In the courtyard is always a lively atmosphere, schoolchildren, locals and tourists from different countries.
The madrasah is included in the list of monuments protected by the state, it was once erected in the united ensemble with the Khonakoy Muyi Muborak Mausoleum. In 1892 after the death of the founder Abulkasymkhan ishan, they began to call him, Abulkasymkhan-ishan.
In 2002 the top of the mehrob building was restored. Until today, there is a couplet (beit) in the Tajik language. By assumption, the walls of this building keep the secret of the hair of the prophet. This is indicated in the quatrain written in Arabic calligraphy with blue paints on a light green background.
The building has gone through many rebuildings, natural disasters and a change of power, but it still gives us a piece of history. The memory of Abulkasymkhan, as a person who sacrificed his life for the residents of the city during the cholera rebellion, will live in these walls for a long time, as well as in the minds of people coming to the madrasa, named after Abdulkasymkhan.
Madrasa emphasizes the unique style of the Eastern people, in front of the entrance there is a 20-meter arch, doors with a rifled ornament, and trees grow in the courtyard. People gather here to look at the hand-made products of skilled craftsmen, as well as to be part of the history of the people of Uzbekistan. Every tourist is worth a visit to Tashkent, because this city has a rather rich history, like its inhabitants.
