This is a park-like setting across a rushing stream with a unique spring where locals take spring water home.
The burial coffin is enough to come for.

The architecture of the places can not actually compete with what you can see in the city but if you have some time it is a nice and beautiful small place to visit in Samarkand.

There were very few people there when we visited, which in itself was lovely! You could only see into the tomb which is remarkably long! Paid a visit to the local cemetery just behind, which in itself was fascinating.

There are many so-called Daniel's Tomb in the world. This one sets itself a part by having a long coffin, really long. And there are still pilgrims come from all over the world to visit this site and pray. Not far from downtown Samarkand, check it out if you have time, but not a must.

Located by the river and a bit away from the city I found the setting of the Tomb to be very relaxing and nice.
The tomb itself was understated and not that interesting but I enjoyed our visit and glad we stopped.
