27June2014* View from the Tilla-Kari Minaret

While visiting the Registan for a second time on the following day with a classmate who had just arrived from Tashkent, we were offered to climb up one of the minarets at the complex.  The day prior my friend from Uzbekistan told me this was possible, you just need to have the right person working and be willing to pay a small bribe to climb up to the top for bird-eye views of the complex.  So we managed to be approached if we would like to have this opportunity and of course I positively responded to the chance.  We climbed up a spiraling staircase in the Tilla-Kari Minaret and from the top we were able to look back onto the courtyard of the said Medrassa, across the gardens behind the Reigstan and into the center courtyard of the three medrassas.
