Khodja Doniyor Mausoleum
Tomb of Khoja Doniyor significantly differs from numerous mausoleums of Samarkand by its amazing appearance. According to the legends the remains of the famous Bible of St. Daniel are kept at those crypt houses, although this fact has long been in doubt. Because according to other ancient records the prophet was buried in the Iranian city of Susa, which is quite far from Samarkand. Biblical prophet was born in 603 BC. e. His name can be translated as "God is my judge." The noble race of Daniel starts from the roots of such famous rulers as King Solomon and David. During the capture of Jerusalem by Nebuchadnezzar forces, the prophet and all the residents of the city were captured and sent to ancient Babylon. It seemed that fate had prepared Daniel many challenges. However, many people noted a sharp mind and skillful abilities of a boy. There was a decision of sending him to the best school of Babylon, where he began to learn countless sciences, among which were even very occult for the discipline of that period - the interpretation of dreams and astrology.
