This mosque is very unique with four-domed roof. The mosque itself is small. You can climb to the rooftop for a better view, the stairs are narrow and steep, you must be really fit to do it.

Hidden in a residential area, this is a little gem in Bukhara. There is still some restauration work going on. There are a lot of souvenirshops nearby. Go there in the early morning!
