Muyi Muborak Madrasah in Tashkent

Muyi Muborak Madrasah, Tashkent

One of the oldest structures of Khast Imam complex is the Muyi Muborak madrasah (“Sacred Hair”). The Muyi Muborak madrasah built in the 16th century, is also distinguished by its unique history. The hair of the Prophet Muhammad is stored in this madrasah, due to which it got its name.

There is evidence that in 1856-1857 by decree of the Kokand Khan Mirza Ahmed Kushbegi, the madrasah building was rebuilt again.
