Abstract: 

Restoration, reconstruction, renovation and rehabilitation of the monuments and architectural of the past is a notable aspect of architectural course in the Timurid period. The pioneer of this course was Timur (Tamerlane) himself. He spent much wealth for the construction, and rebuilt some of the remaining buildings. His son and successor, Shahrukh, overtook his father in the architectural patronage and reconstruction. In the reign of Shahrukh, the princes and courtiers got relatively authority for restoration. After Shahrukh, this process was continued by Timurid kings like Mirza Abu’l-Qasim Babur and Sultan Abu-Sa’id. Sultan Husayn Bayqara and his vizier, Ali-Shir Nava’i rebuilt some of the previous buildings. Many of the officers, as well as rich people out of the court, increased buildings through various constructions. In comparison with the vast architectural activities in Timurid period, what is remained is little. However, the Timurid historians’ reports can compensate the shortage of information relatively. It seems that this part of Timurid architecture has been neglected by scholars.
