Tashmachit is a unique architectural monument of the Kyzyltepa district of Navoi region. It is located in the village of Vangazi. This historical-architectural ensemble consists of a mosque-honako, which is called «Tashmechet» (Uzb. Toshmachit) and «Minareta» (Uzbek minor).

An approximate date for the construction of the Tashmechet is considered to be the 16th century. Scientists conducted a lot of research and excavation around this mosque. But, unfortunately the information on this structure is very small. The mosque is a quadrangular building above which a dome rises.

The walls are made of burnt square bricks in conjunction with a solution of ganch. From two sides the mosque is surrounded by a three-rowed gallery, which is supported by brick columns. Spherical conical gallery overlap is based on single thyroid sails. The lining of the large dome is made of square bricks.

The interior of the mosque has preserved traces of past decorative design. On the ceiling there are semi-octagonal niches, on the walls there were fragments of painting with geometric ornamentation, on the entrance wall there remained a decorative cornice, located not at the height of the person’s eyes.

From the left of the mosque is located a minaret. This minaret was erected in the 18th century and was intended to call believers for Friday prayers. The height of the minaret is 24 meters, and the diameter of the base is 3.65 meters. The minaret has a round-barreled form and is decorated with patterned brickwork. The trunk of the minaret is crowned with a lantern with 8 arched apertures and stalactites.

According to local residents, earlier this complex included madrassas, baths and a number of hujras. Information about the Mazar is absent, but in the 50s of the 20th century, judging by the old photo, near the mosque was a cemetery.
