Hasti Imom Complex

This is probably the most well-known ancient site in Tashkent, although it's hardly the only one, in spite of what some people tell you.  

The first time we went here was after wandering along Zarqaynar Street from Chorsu Bazaar, which is worth walking down, especially since you'll run into some other old structures.  Having this complex open up in front of you as you walk through the old mahallah is lovely.   Here's some info about it, or you can just look at the photos. Some of the buildings are new, some are older madrassahs and mausoleums.  One of the oldest copies of the Qur'an is here too, although we've never been there when it's open.
