4.6/5 based on 220+ 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.

  • Although not large, definitely. Paying area to place for the price absolutely not worth the effort.
