Mausoleum of two Askhab

Mausoleum of two Askhab

One of the most important pilgrimage sites in Turkmenistan are the mausoleums built for two Islamic askhab (companions of the Prophet), Al-Hakim ibn Amr al-Jafari and Buraida ibn al-Huseib al-Islami. The two squat buildings sit in front of reconstructed Timurid Evans (iwans, portals) that honor the tombs of the two askhab. In front of the mausoleums is a still-functioning water cistern.
