  • The slightly crooked mausoleum of Il-Arslan, the oldest surviving monument of Old Urgench, the former capital of the medieval state of Khwarazm (11th-12th centuries), has an architectural historical importance. The building itself is, as usual at that time, only embellished with terracotta decorations, the dome is decorated with a zigzag pattern of glazed bricks. The historic importance of this building is precisely in that dome. Not in the use of those glazed bricks, that technique is also relatively new, but in the conical shape of the dome. The Seljuks introduce that conical shape, which is also known as the "Turkish triangle".
