    Good idea. Stainless Steel's RR/RC compilation includes a river port building, and I managed to persuade getting it added Third Age's RR/RC. As it is, the building card looks identical to a port, provides a trade bonus and a generic growth bonus. I personally mod and replace the generic bonus with a health bonus (makes more sense to me, as many cultures even today use rivers as a sewer).

    The Mausoleum of Khoja Ahmed Yasawi (Kazakh: Қожа Ахмет Яссауи кесенесі, Qoja Axmet Yassaw kesenesi) is an unfinished mausoleum in the city of Turkestan, in southern Kazakhstan. The structure was commissioned in 1389 by Timur, who ruled the area as part of the expansive Mongol Empire, to replace a smaller 12th-century mausoleum of the famous Turkic poet and Sufi mystic, Khoja Ahmed Yasawi (1093–1166). However, construction was halted with the death of Timur in 1405.

    Despite its incomplete state, the mausoleum has survived as one of the best-preserved of all Timurid constructions. Its creation marked the beginning of the Timurid architectural style.The experimental spatial arrangements, innovative architectural solutions for vault and dome constructions, and ornamentations using glazed tiles made the structure the prototype for this distinctive art, which spread across the empire and beyond.

    Only problem is, it was built by the Timurids in 1389 (says wiki)--that's too far out of the time frame. But buildings that were built in the late twelth or any time in the thirteenth century are fine.

    Hi all,

    This is my first post and I will introduce myself elsewhere in the forum.
    In the meanwhile I would like to have a contribution to this thread.

    Some suggestions:

    Did we already have Caravanserai's?
    Caravanserais built along the Silk Road had important tasks within the trade concept. Appearing as fortresses on remote roads, these edifices with their elaborate stone ornaments and accurate space designs also bore great importance from the architectural aspect. [photo]


    Gevher Nesibe medical center:
    Gevher Nesibe was an early-13th century Seljuk princess, the daughter of Kilij Arslan II and sister of Kaykhusraw I, and the namesake of a magnificent complex comprising a hospital, an adjoining medrese devoted primarily to medical studies, and a mosque in Kayseri, Turkey. The complex (klliye in Turkish) that she endowed is considered one of the pre-eminent monuments of Seljuk architecture. The hospital was built between 1204 and 1206, and the medrese, whose construction started immediately after Gevher Nesibe's death in 1206, was finished in 1210. [photo]


    Kumbat tower tombs:
    In addition to hans, the Seljuks also developed the specific building form of the tomb tower, known as a "kumbat", or "trbe". Turbes were of 2 types: a cylindrical tower with a low flat dome, sometimes covered on the outside with turquoise tiles; or a circular, polygonal or octagonal body fitted onto a square base by means of Turkish triangles and roofed with a conical turret. They often had carved inscriptions and figures. They comprised two storeys, with the body lying in a stone coffin on the lower floor with the upper chamber serving as a mosque chapel with a mihrab. The entrance to the upper chamber was set fairly high on one side. Trbes are the translation in stone of the former shamanistic tent tombs of the Turkomans. An important number of them can be found in the city of Kayseri. No one who has seen the forest of gravestones and the eleven Seljuk trbes in the cemetery of Ahlat overlooking Lake Van can forget their poetry and mystical evocation.



    The lodge of the Mevlevi order:
    Now the Mevlna museum, located in Konya, Turkey, is the mausoleum of Jalal ad-Din Muhammad Rumi, a Sufi mystic also known as Mevlna or Rumi. It was also the dervish lodge (tekke) of the Mevlevi order, better known as the whirling dervishes. Seljuk construction, under architect Behrettin Tebrizli, was finished in 1274 [photo]


    The Kızıl Kule (Red Tower):
    Construction of the building began in the beginning of the reign of the Anatolian Seljuk Sultan Ala ad-Din Kay Qubadh I and was completed in 1226. The sultan brought the accomplished architect Ebu Ali Reha from Aleppo, Syria to Alanya to complete the building. The name derives from the more red color brick he used in its construction. So well-made was it that it remains one of the finest examples of medieval military architecture.[photo]

    Above were all very important buildings of the Sultanate of Rm aka Seljuk architecture of the 12th century.

    I hope I made a usefull addition to this thread by posting some of my suggestions.
    "A very meaningful quote of a outstandingly wise saying from a historicly boundless important person"

    Famously, a curse has been attached to opening Timur's tomb. In the year of Timur's death, a sign was carved in Timur's tomb warning that whoever would dare disturb the tomb would bring demons of war onto his land. Gerasimov's expedition opened the tomb on June 19, 1941. Operation Barbarossa, the invasion of the Soviet Union by Nazi Germany, began three days later on June 22, 1941. Shortly after Timur's skeleton and that of Ulugh Beg, his grandson, were reinterred with full Islamic burial rites in 1942, the Germans surrendered at Stalingrad.

    Great Mosque of Samara, Iraq. It was built 848-852 AD.
    on an open plan. It is the largest mosque of Islam,was at one time the largest mosque in the world
    Besides being a place of prayer, the mosque was also used as a "community center"
    for a combination of reasons: a school, for political and social meetings,
    a place for judging cases, and other functions in the Islamic community.

Its architect, Adjemi ibn Abubekr (or Adjemi Nakchivani) also built the nearby mausoleum of Yusuf ibn Kuseyir. Scholars mention that the mausoleum was originally built with a madrassa, and drawings and photographs of the site from the nineteenth century confirm that it existed as part of a religious and educational complex which no longer exists.

    Mumina Khatun was wife of the founder of the State of Atabegs of Azerbaijan Shamsaddin Eldaniz.

    This one should definetly be included in Nakhchivan. Directly connected to Atabegs.
