Architectural Building Historic Site
Stop by and admire Mohammed Amin Madrassah, a short minaret intricately decorated with glazed tiles, and a landmark of Khiva. The tower's unusual barrel-like shape is due to the premature death of its builder, Mohammed Amin Khan, in 1855, leaving the minaret at 29 m (95 ft) in height, whereas he has envisioned it three times as tall. Take some memorable shots of the iconic tower and its exquisite, detailed tilework in vivid shades of blue and green. For travelers who use our custom trip planner, Khiva holidays become easier to arrange, with trips to the Mohammed Amin Madrassah and other attractions mapped out and timetabled.

Perhaps most remarkable is its unfinished minaret, which thus was due to lack of budget, as it was intended in the wars with the Turkomans. Inside is a beautiful cloister which is idea to relax. The structure retains the primordial essence, with very narrow and steep, spiral staircases long corridors, carved wood doors that are works of art.
