Chor-Minor, Bukhara

(280+ reviews on the web)
Architectural Building Landmark
Admire the charm of four elegant towers of Chor-Minor, a historic mosque and madrasa, and part of a World Heritage Site. Completed in 1807 by Turkmen Khalif Niyazkul, these round baked-brick towers feature unique ornamentation and numerous sky-blue tiled domes. Their ornateness represents more of a Hindu style than the rest of Uzbek architecture in Bukhara. Three of them served as storage space, while the fourth one has a staircase leading to the top. Climb that staircase to get a panorama of the city, and stop in the small souvenir shop inside the complex. A visit to Chor-Minor represents just the start of the adventure when you use our Bukhara trip itinerary builder to plot your vacation.

  • 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.  more »

  • A bit off the beaten track. Still being repaired but can climb the stairs up for a view for free.
  • Very touristy in the ground floor, but you can walk up to the roof and have a nice look around
  • This has been my constant companion through central Asia. The cover photo from Lonely planets excellent guide. The placd sits in a backstreet you could have travelled back in time a few centuries. A shirt walk from the town centre.
  • Beautiful mosque in Bukhara
  • Beautiful little mosque.
