Мавзолей Абу Мансура Матуриди

Abu Mansour Maturidi's (Moturidiy yodgorlik majmui) mausoleum — the mausoleum in Samarkand located in kilometer to the southeast from the area and ensemble Registan. The mausoleum is erected over Abu Mansour Mahomed ibn Mahomed's grave of Al-Maturidi (870 — 944), the famous Islamic theologian, expert on fiqh (Muslim law) and the interpreter of the Koran (mufassir), the founder of a maturidizm. He was buried at the Samarkand cemetery Chokardiza where, according to the legend, more than 3000 scientists-theologians are buried. Over a grave the mausoleum destroyed in the 1930th years was built.
