Nadir Divanbegi Medressa Bukhara. It was built as a caravanserai. It became a medressa in 1622. It has stunning exterior tilework, which depicts a pair of peacocks holding lambs either side of a sun with a human face. This is in direct contravention of the Islamic prohibition against depicting living creatures.
