  • Oddly enough, this mosque is often perceived as an addition to the minaret of the same name. Although It is quite the opposite. The Mosque is the main building, the minaret is only part of it. It is the largest functioning mosque of Bukhara and the most important architectural monument of the region. But for tourists it is not an obstacle. Ministers understand that the mosque is the main attraction, so tourists are very tolerant. Be Sure to come back here in the evening when the illumination is off.

  • I got to visit in low season, on a Wednesday, in good weather. I had the whole mosque to myself, an incredible feeling. It must be quite the place when 10000 people have crowded in.  more »
  • The Traditional layout, you can look and walk in countless inner arches. Nicely complements the composition of the minaret Kolyan.

  • Such a beautiful place, make sure you see the Kalon Minaret at might too when it's lit up. It looks amazing. Well worth a visit.
  • This is such an impressive building but what I really loved was the white mulberry tree in the middle and the welcoming fruit which I so desperately needed after the searing 45C heat in July.
  • Its a veri beautiful place
  • Very beautiful. Very impressive. Lots of tourists but it’s so enormous you hardly notice
  • There's a madrasah, moseleum and mosque.
