Abstract:
The architectural complexes in Central Asia received great attention by the sultans and princes who significantly contributed to building them, including mosques, madāris, and khanqahs. Bukhara held many of the complexes, indicating the prosperous architectural activity that reflected the architectural creations and traditions of the city. In addition, it showed the skills of architects and artists in giving cohesion to the environment in Central Asia, as well as the variety of architectural and decorative units. Therefore, the present study of the Complex of Chor Bakr aims to define the relationship between the buildings and the political, scientific, and artistic conditions and to recognize the architectural features of the buildings in Bukhara during the Shaibanid era.
