Babur Literary Museum

Andijan, Uzbekistan

The building itself was once a madrassah and was destroyed after Great Mongol Empire Babur, who was once governor of Andijan, departed from the city. The building was restored later in the 18-th century as a town hall, residence of the city’s ruling family. Since 1990, it has housed a literary museum detailing Babur’s poetry and prose, liberally sprinkled with reproductions of famous miniatures and paintings of chapters in his story. There are also exhibits of famous Andijani poetess Nadira Beg (1792-1842), wife of Omar, khan of Kokand.
