The entire complex is very clean and so large that it doesn't feel as if there are many people visiting. The locals feed the ducks, others pray in front of the memorial. Absorb the atmosphere, enjoy people watching and reflect on one's life!

One of other 6 mausoleums of Saints which has to be visited in Buhara. Prayers are heard and you feel the presence of something strong.

Bakhautdin was a 14th century Sufi mystic and founder of the Naqshbandi order of Sufis. His mausoleum complex grew froma simple tomb over his grave to a 16th century hostel for visiting dervishes, then to a spiritual complex in the 17th century with a mosque added in the 18th century. The entire complex was restored in 1993.

This is a mosque, a Sufi hostel, a holy spring, a Zoroastrian shrine, all wrapped into one. This is a must, especially to soak in the beauty of the intricately adored ceiling of the terrace here.

A taxi ride out of town, but well worth the trip. There is some beautiful tile work and wood carving, and it preserves a spiritual feel

I was expecting maybe too much, but I found this site to be heavily restored, and many of the architectural pieces are of recent origin. There were many local and other muslim visitors to the Naqshbandi Mausoleum for prayers and blessings, and although I learnt a few things from the guide, most of the significance of the place was lost...

What an honor to visit the grave of the founder of one of the largest Sufi orders in the world! Bakhautdin rejected mendicant Sufis and instead insisted, "Dil b Youro, Dast b khor!" (Hearts to God, and hands to labor). He is beloved all over the world, and the Muslims who I observed visiting his tomb were incredibly happy to... More
