Bazaar in Osh - a colorful landmark of Osh city

Once in Osh, be sure to visit the local bazaar "Zhaima". A huge eastern market stretches for a kilometer along the western bank of the Ak-Bura River. What's not here: food, clothing, household goods, textiles, souvenirs and even cattle. Most of the goods are Chinese consumer goods, but everything is cheap and only a lot.

The unprepared tourist's eyes run away from the chaos that reigns here: crowds of people, merchants and trolleys, off-the-shelf counters where perfumery is mixed up with Chinese jeans, and apples from cardboard boxes and cheap toys are sold nearby.

Fragrant, hot cakes from the tandoor are offered by brisk women in bright colorful dresses. Do not go past selling ready-made meals: shish kebabs, pilaf, samsa and beshbarmak, smelling so that the saliva flow.

Exotic looks and meat series, where, in addition to the usual beef and mutton, they sell horsemeat, as well as various insides that they also eat, and exotic for Europeans delicacy - mutton heads.

Be that as it may, today the Mausoleum of Asaph ibn Burhiya is one of the oldest monuments preserved in Osh. This is a rectangular portal-dome structure of 7.3x9.59 meters. The corners of the building, as is customary in Islamic architecture, are oriented around the world. The dome with a diameter of 4.4 meters is based on an octagonal drum. The interior has an octagonal shape with a side length of 2.11 to 2.23 meters. A special beauty stands out for the portal-dome niche of the mausoleum. The upper part of the portal ends with teeth in the form of a stylized shamrock. On its edges there are decorative columns. The entire entrance niche is decorated with a sophisticated ganch decor.

In 1999-2000-ies. In the framework of celebrating the 3000 anniversary of Osh, the dome of the mausoleum was partially restored.
