If you are fortunate enough to be able to travel one day along the Silk Road in Central Asia, you will probably get a chance to see this when you reach Uzbekistan. The title Po-i-Kalyan (also Poi Kalyan), which means “The foot of the Great”, belongs to the architectural complex located at the foot of the great minaret Kalyan in Bukhara, Uzbekistan. The Mir-i arab Madrasah mosque is part of this complex.
There is little known about the Mir-i Arab Madrasah origin. The construction of Mir-i-Arab Madrasah is ascribed to Sheikh Abdullah Yamani of Yemen, the spiritual mentor of early Shaybanids. He disputably was in charge of donations of Abdullah-khan (1512-1533), devoted to construction of religion edifice.
