Chasma Ayub Mausoleum, Bukhara

(3.7/5 based on 55+ reviews on the web)
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.

Very attractive place!
