Chor-Minor, Bukhara

4.5
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.

  • Chorminal in the Old City of Bukhara is an impressive architectural spire of four beautiful, often decorate the cover of the book to introduce the Bukhara building. Means four Spire with four beautiful daughters, said that had built the old model daughter India merchants Terminal. So of the four buildings, each with a distinctive look also would never get bored. Chorminal is in the edge of the Altstadt (Old City), and other tourism places together. And the views to see if time permits is the place to go. You can reach in about 15 minutes ' walk from the rabihaus.

  • Very quiet very beautiful photo-taking place, not too far from the city to step on their own car 10 minutes to reach, along the road is not difficult to find, ask nearby passers-by will know the direction.

  • A small but unique structure. Had the chance to go inside and upstairs to have a look although there was nothing much as it was still under refurbishment at the time of visit.
  • A little jewel. Catches a glorious glint at sunrise and sunset.
  • Small but impressive. Unique structure considering all the other architecture in town. There is acre taker shop downstairs keeping with the trend in the country and old madrassas. Can go up through the store though not too much to see. Short walk from Laibi Haus
  • It's a very nice place, under reconstruction at the moment (August 2017) but well worth the visti. You cannot enter but it's nice to take some pictures from the outside.
  • Under restoration works and no access. Ok to take a picture outside.
