Abstract:
Mosques have had major interest and great care by sultans, princes, princesses, and khans, as they made contributions in constructing diverse mosques’ styles, varying between congregational and compact mosques in architectural structures of miscellaneous functions. Studies have tackled the congregational mosques that were built in Samarkand, Bukhara, and Khiva, yet, have gone short on dealing with the second style of mosques; combined mosques, which had several styles and different architectural units and elements. In fact, the influence of these styles extended beyond Central Asia’s borders. This study, in turn, aims at identifying these styles and their main architectural units and elements, revealing their influence outside the geographical range of Central Asia.
