The Ancient City of Samarkand - It's All Just a Big Fascade

A more serious, cultured posting here (though perhaps Club Arni is also a cultured, serious place). The first two pictures are of the intricate, towering fascades of some of the monuments of Samarkand. These have been restored, keep in mind, since days of Amir Timur (Tamerlane).

This does not quite qualify as a fascade.
Another picture unrelated to the theme.
