The mausoleum Rukhabad does not attract much attention of the foreigners but among the local people it is quite an important place for its old history and spiritual significance. Rukhobod means “Happy Spirit” and is the mausoleum of Burganiddin Sagardji. Burganiddin Sagardji was known as a man who convinced Kazakh & Chinese nomads to convert in Muslim religion.
The current mausoleum was built in the 14th century by the order of Amir Temur. Temur respected all religious monuments and he honored the history of all people who had religious importance. But some other sources inform that the sgardji was buried in Samarkand in the 10th century and other sources tell that he was buried in Samarkand in the 13th century. There is another fact that the architecture of Rukhobod does not correspond to the architectural style of Amir Temur.
Regardless when the mausoleum was built it is a historically important monument standing just next to the majestic mausoleum of Amir Temur.
