This is a good example of a standard Medressa. It's near the Chorsu Market, the traditional Uzbek market for locals. You can visit this place first before entering the market area.

Very interesting place, especially since madrasah is still in use- people take lessons about islam there. You can also see some artwork and arabic calligraphy.

If you visit chorsu bazaar this place is just 10min of walking away. Its quite nice but don't expect it to be like Samarkand or Bukhara...but it gives you a good impression what you are going to see on your onward journey. Prices are acceptable...More

The madrasa is located near the bazaar Chorsu and it is one of the scools where the students are learning the religion. I prefer not to go inside in order not to disturb the students studying in it.

Nice and historical for Tashkent. Nothing special if compared to Bukhara and Samarkand. Near Chorsu Bazaar and Chorsu metro station. Did not go inside, but looked at it from outside.

This was the first Madressa we saw in Uzbekistan and we were impressed. In comparison with the Madressa of Samerkand the one in Tashkent is not very interesting. It is not worth going to the Kukeldash Medressa, if you have already seen many extremely beautiful...More
