The majolica tile lined dome of the mausoleum of Turabeg Khanym at Konye Urgench has been dated to the 12th C. Some doubt exists as to whether it was a mausoleum or a throne room. The dome is supported on 24 arches at one level representing the hours of the day and on 12 arches with squinches just below signifying the months.
