Chor-Minor, Bukhara
(4.6/5 based on 240 reviews on the web)
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.

  • Chor Minor is small, surprising and photogenic. The house in front of the monument has the key and is very easy to visit. A relaxing visit to an impresive and small monument out of the crowds. 
  • This delightful small mosque is now a craft shop (I got a lovely camel wool scarf) and is therefore best appreciated from the raised pathway opposite 
  • Located away from the centre of town and the other main attractions. Chor-Minor has a charm of its own having 4 blue tiled minarets, remarkable for its size and making it quite impressive. Not the big...  more »

  • 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.
  • Very touristy in the ground floor, but you can walk up to the roof and have a nice look around
  • Very interesting and different from the other madrasas. Pity that the houses of the city are completely stuck.
