Opened in 2009 by Aga Khan and President Rahmon, this lavish building with elaborate traditional designs and five minarets features modern conference halls, as well as a school for Muslim children serving Tajikistan’s Ismaili minority. Dubbed the first Ismaili Shi’a center in Central Asia, the complex, named after the 10th-century founder of the Samanid dynasty and designed by a Pakistani-Canadian, has a lovely garden with a fountain.
