world pictures Uzbekistan: Samarkand: Shah-e Zende

The tomb of Shirin Beg Aqa, a sister of Tamerlane (1385-6). Unlike the plate-like glazed tiles of Shad-e Mulk, this mausoleum is decorated with mosaics composed of small tiles.  The inscription (brown letters on cobalt) reads: "This is the tomb of the great and noble queen Shirin Beq Aqa, daughter of Taraghay, (may) the light of God (be upon) her spirit, AH 787/AD 1385-6."
