This madrasa built in 1807 is a copy of the char minar in Hyderabad, India. Not very busy when we went. Lonely planet thought it good enough to feature this monument on the cover of the Central Asia book. Interesting curio shop opposite this monument.

We didn't take a tour of Bukhara, which if I go back I think I would to learn more about each structure, but we enjoyed walking around and seeing the incredible feats of architecture.

A small beautiful building set in a quiet corner of Bukhara. The inside is a shop and while you can climb to the roof for a small fee there is not much to see from there

Here is a nice place to enjoy sunrise! It is located in a small alley, where you can meet many local people and selling their products ( vegetables, milk..) on the street in the early morning!

Very fotogenic building and really the best view is from a small distance. You can go inside and find a shop (I was a bit surprised about that) and you can go upside for a small price... but really is not worth it.

Lovely small building which is now a carpet shop so the outside is really the bit to look at, although you can go inside and up some stairs to the roof but the woman charges a small fee.

Tucked away in between the alleys in a different part of town than the other mayor draws (c. 10 min walk), but worth the effort. Once you're there, you understand why this little building made the cover of the current Central Asia edition of the...More
