The school ground was given  to Amir Shir Ali  Nawayi  by Sultan Hussain-e Bayeqra ,but he constructed the school and the mosque using his own money devotedly .Because of that the school was named Ekhlasid (Devotee) school .Amir Shir Ali Nawayi ‘s school could not survive much and was attacked and destroyed by the enemies of culture and civilization. A dome was constructed on Amir Shir Ali Nawayi s tomb almost 60 years ago ,but recently it was destroyed to rebuild a great and decorated dome by Bador cultural Foundation from Uzbekistan , which has not been done yet.

Amir Shir Ali Nawayi was one of the great scholars  and poets of the Timuri’s lineage and was the advisor of sultan Hussain-e bayeqra in all affairs of his period .
