Architectural epigraphy of Uzbekistan
«ARCHITECTURAL EPIGRAPHY OF UZBEKISTAN» IN 2019, WORK WILL CONTINUE ON A UNIQUE SERIES OF BOOKS-ALBUMS «ARCHITECTURAL EPIGRAPHY OF UZBEKISTAN»
Today in Uzbekistan, dynamic modernity goes hand in hand with deep age-old wisdom and tradition. The unique project “Architectural epigraphy of Uzbekistan”, already published in 13 volumes, tells about epigraphic inscriptions on ancient monuments of the country, representing the richest cultural and historical heritage. The long and painstaking work of the scientists of Uzbekistan to decipher these wise messages from time immemorial lasted more than six years. The main idea of the project is to bring ideas about a civilized and enlightened Islam as a religion of peace, goodness and tolerance to the general public. In 2019, this work will continue.
The project plans include the publication of richly illustrated books-albums devoted to the architectural epigraphy of Bukhara (2 volumes), Khiva (2 volumes), and also the books-album devoted to epigraphic inscriptions on the ancient majestic monument of Samarkand – Gur Emir.
