Sayid Allauddin Mausoleum

The Sayid Allauddin Mausoleum is one of the oldest buildings in Khiva. The building of the mausoleum is adjacent to the walls of the Matniyaz Divan-Begi madrasa on the Eastern side and is an interesting object to visit while walking around the old city. The mausoleum of said Allauddin, along with other ancient buildings of Khiva, is included in the list of UNESCO world heritage sites. 

The architecture of the mausoleum of said Allauddin is very interesting: almost all the elements of the building (stepped tromps, domes, walls) are made of clay bricks, roughly hewn and not decorated in any way. This looks quite atypical for the usual openwork architectural style of Central Asia. The simplicity of construction gives the eye a break from the elegantly and brightly decorated sights of Khiva. The minimalistic walls create a striking contrast between the interior and the tombstones lined with bright majolica. The masters maintained the style of Khorezm artists of the XIV century when decorating the tomb.
