“A palace is erected above the city
 Whose circle compiler mapped out.
 Not according to the divine drawings
 Erected a set of surprise to us.
 That vault is the top of all earthly wonders,
 The likeness of the vault of the eternal heaven.
 What is given to the dome of heaven
 Everything in the dome of the earth is reflected"

Alisher Navoi "Confusion of the Righteous".

Tours in Kazakhstan and Central Asia.
