Geocache Description:

During the prosperous reign of Mohammed Amin Khan his wife had the Madrassah commissioned for her son, Abdullah. After the untimely beheading of his father whilst in battle against the Turkoman, Abdullah became Khan when only seventeen years old. Within months he followed in his father's footsteps and went to war with the Turkoman tribes but was swiftly slain in combat.
Today his madrassah is the museum of natural history which displays ageing items of stuffed wildlife, including a forlorn-looking seagull which is thousands of kilometres away from the sea! Most animal exhibits are now extinct or extremely rare and provide a grim reminder of the Aral Sea basin's once thriving animal population. Cotton, one of the main culprits of the Sea's decline, is also on display.


Во время процветающего правления Мухаммеда Амина Хана его жене было поручено медресе для ее сына, Абдуллы. Абдулла стал ханом, когда ему было всего семнадцать лет. Через несколько месяцев он пошел по стопам своего отца и пошел на войну с туркменскими племенами, но был быстро убит в бою.
Сегодня его медресе является музеем естественной истории, который показывает тысячи миль от моря! Большинство животных вымерли или встречаются крайне редко и являются напоминанием о некогда процветающей популяции животных бассейна Аральского моря. Хлопок, один из главных виновников упадка моря, также демонстрируется.
