Chashma-Ayub Mausoleum is located near the Samani Mausoleum, in Bukhara, Uzbekistan. Its name means Job's well, due to the legend in which Job (Ayub) visited this place and made a well by striking the ground with his staff. The water of this well is still pure and is considered healing. The current building was constructed during the reign of Timur and features a Khwarazm-style conical dome uncommon in Bukhara.

  • The building can be seen from a distance in the Park of the Samanids, tourists walking on their own, often come to drink water and escape from the sweltering heat of Bukhara. Those who attend the object with a guide-learn about Bukhara the irrigation system, admire ancient objects of water storage and transportation, and also taste the water from the well, which some guides offer get it yourself. Very attractive place!

Job in the Old Testament is Chashma Ayub, the fountain, there is a spring on the inside. Building brick made as it was. Shine in the sky blue, not yellow or ocher, blue also.
