this isn't really worth a very long visit, but was worth visiting, nonetheless. Our local friends were happy to visit because of the spiritual power they feel at this place, which is definitely a local holy site.

Nice park area around the site. Tomb is small so probably only need a few minutes to look around. I’d suggest only visiting if you’re passing, or if you have a longer stay in Samarkand.

There are two pleasant buildings one next to the other: Saint Daniel's tomb and a font of spring drinking water.

It's a pretty mausoleum in a pretty area. History does not really support the claim that Daniel was buried here, but I suppose there's no harm in making believe.

The tomb is believed to be the burial place of Daniel, a biblical prophet and saint who is revered by both Muslims and Christians. The tomb is in a beautiful garden, surrounded by trees and flowers. I visited it during the evening time, calm and serene beautiful surroundings add charm to the place.

Seems the prophet Daniel is revered by Christians, Muslims, and Jews, which then makes his mausoleum a pretty popular pilgrimage site.

There are several legends about his whopping 18-metre long sarcophagus. The most illogical one is that the corpse of Daniel continues to grow, so extra room is needed to accommodate the increasing corpse.

If Daniel died 2500 years ago and if the corpse grows at 5 cm/year, then it doesn’t take rocket science to figure out that by now Daniel’s corpse would be far, far longer than a mere 18 metres!

The area around the mausoleum is quite pretty, akin to a little park. There’s also a small domed building nearby that delivers ‘healing water’. It comes through pipes that drain into a trough.

I can’t say I was impressed with this site one way or another, but it was still nice to see so many pilgrims who were impressed with the site.

Not much to see but a long grave under a roof. 25'000 Som was too much for that imo. I understand that it might be a special place for religious visitors, but for sightseeing purposes this is nothing interesting at all. Or maybe I am just spoiled from all the crazy beautiful buildings in Samarkand...

This is close to the best plov restaurant in Uzbekistan and worth a detour before or after lunch. See the black river and king david mausoleum plus the 600 year old pistachio tree.

On the shore of Siab, a small tributary of Zerafshan River, there is a sacred place, which keeps the relics of Daniel, the Old Testament Biblical Prophet. All versions agree that Danier is the Saint and pilgrims from all the three world religions come here to worship him. Especially pilgrims worship the spring near the mausoleum.
Peaceful environment and healthy spring water.

We were strolling in the valley and came upon this calm and peaceful mausoleum. The tomb is 18 meters long, thus the building is also long, entry was not permitted when we visited but everything was visible from the doorway.
