  • Csaszma Ajub ("Fountain" or "source") is one of the oldest monuments of Bukhara. According to one legend, Jób, who was called the Prophet Ajub, was named in Koran. The rod has A faded source. Another variant is that this source, in which he rescued Ayubot from the sufferations mentioned in the Book of Old Testament Job, was also washed. Today we do not know how, but the events related to the job have somehow played a role in the creation of the city and the emergence of the Jewish diaspora in Buhara. In the time of Islam, the Csashma-Ajub was the Holy center of Buhara, which was founded by the Naukand Cemetery. Since the fountain is not known, however, at least the XII. It was a very nice place. The inscription above the entrance indicates that the building was built during the reign of Amir Temur (1370-1405). The fountain of job is located in the Middle Hall, behind the burial place of an unknown person. The peculiarity of the building on the roof is a tent-shaped cone, which is probably built in captive Horezami masters. The cone is top of a work stork nest. It is interesting that the city today does not nest stork. More than Anno 100, several lakes still provided food to the storks, but in the 1970 years the illnesses in this city were the microbes in the water, so the majority of them were put into place, thus the living space of the storks was lost. The last stork-yard was nestled in the city in the 80, but nowadays there are also many artificial-storks and artificial storks that remind these birds. One of them is here. Today there is a museum of water in the building. It is very frightful to see the series of pictures of how the Aral lake dried up. Today there is only a small part of Kazakhstan that is trying to protect it with a barrier.

  • A mausoleum named Sam of Job. It is said that you can drink spring water inside. Inside, exhibits are displayed and are operated as museums. There is a large bazaar right next to it, so the surroundings are a little hectic.
