Turkmenistan - Muslims pray outdoors after a storm - Friday Featured Print

Turkmenistan - Muslims pray outdoors after a storm - Friday

Wandering Uzbek dervishes at Samarkand, Uzbekistan - Scene in the Registan. The Registan was a public square, where people gathered to hear royal proclamations, heralded by blasts on enormous copper pipes called dzharchis - and a place of public executions. The Registan is framed by three madrasas (Islamic schools) of distinctive Islamic architecture. Dervish or Darvesh in Persian usually refers to a person who is a seeker of the truth i.e. universal truth. Within the Islamic tradition such people are often known as Sufis, Sufi, people of the way or mystics and they come from every strata of society; here monetary considerations are inapplicable since the situation is that of a deep personal inner spiritual longing. There are in existence a number Sufi Orders many of which bear the name of a great saint and within these orders various practices have continued over the centuries in order to assist generations of seekers whose desire is to be brought to reality itself. It is said that the number of ways to reality/truth exceeds the number of grains of sand on the beach. It may be noted that this infinite number of ways to truth can even start at a point beyond religion, ultimately the truth is an universal quality. Date: circa 1910s

Bukhara, Uzbekistan - Lyab-i Hauz Featured Print

Bukhara, Uzbekistan - Lyab-i Hauz

Lyab-i Hauz ('by the pond'), or Lyab-i Khauz - the name of the area surrounding one of the few remaining hauz (ponds) that have survived in the city of Bukhara in Uzbekistan. Until the Soviet period there were many such ponds, which were the city's principal source of water, but they were notorious for spreading disease and were mostly filled in during the 1920s and 1930s. The Lyab-i Hauz survived because it is the centrepiece of a magnificent architectural ensemble (in part pictured on this card), created during the 16th and 17th centuries, which has not been significantly changed since. Date: circa 1910
