The minaret in Vabkent

The minaret in Vabkent is one of the most refined works of local architecture. The date of the beginning of its construction (1196-97) is inscribed in the form of Kufic inscription in the lower decorative belt that goes round the trunk of the minaret. The inscription also mentions the name of Burkhan-ad-Din Ayud-al-Aziz the Second, who probably ordered the construction. In the upper decorative belt it is written by way of Divani inscription that the minaret was completed in 595, i.e. in 1198-99.
