The mausoleum is included in the complex of religious buildings belonging to the Karakhanid era (9th century). There are no such monuments in all of Central Asia. This square structure is in the form of a massive truncated pyramid, on which rests the original shape of the stepped drum and high dome. The interior of the mausoleum from floor to ceiling is covered with fine ganch carving.
The construction of the complex is connected with the legend about the Arab campaign in these regions led by Shah Jarir - the grandson of the prophet Muhammad. He led 2,700 soldiers to preach Islam among the faithful. But he waskilled. Infidels attacked Muslims during prayer and cut off their heads. The dark-skinned bride of Shah Jarir Safed-Boulogne was the heroine who buried all the fallen. Allah blessed her and she shone with light.
Her name began to be - Safed Bulon - White Woman. The case of Shah Jarir was continuedby his son - Shah Fazil. He punished the infidels and continued to impose religion in these parts. The whole complex is a Muslim shrine - a place of worship for many pilgrims.
This historical and memorial complex includes a bronze age monument, a mausoleum of the 11th-12th centuries and a natural landmark - Archa Mazar Mountain. According to legends, the mountain is considered the last place where Alexander the Great managed to reach. It is here that he lost the battle of Sakam Tigrahaud. In confirmation of this information there is an ancient granite plate, preserved on the mazar, inscription on it «Alexandria Eshata» was madein Greek, which translates as «Last Alexandria». The most valuable in the complex is the mazar Shah Fazil.
In 1999 the historical-memorial complex «Safed-Bulan Shah-Fazl» is included in the UNESCO World Heritage List.
