  • The Mir-I-Arab madrasah or of the emir of the Arabs is a wonder built between 1535-36. It is in the architectural ensemble of Poi Kalan and surprises by its fascinating Indigo colour in symbiosis with neat brick. On the side called great minaret, with a height of 47 meters, work of Bako. Must visit it if go through Bukhara.
