    Museum complex of the Palace consists of two parts with different entrances. We first got into one where the entrance from the main street, running from the main gates of ichan-Qala. Patios interspersed with areas where seldom stood not too interesting exhibits. Visitors were few, perhaps, not all here. We tried to look for something seen on a widely represented in the network of photographs, and in vain. It turned out that it is necessary to go outside, go ahead and turn the corner to the left. Would probably not have found, helped guide one of the difficulties in the first part of the groups. A plaque at the entrance to broadcast something about Craft Museum. It is here that surfaced, finally, the main attractions of the Palace. Very beautiful aivans (sheds-Loggia), bedroom Khan, the first "forest of columns", which we saw in Khiva, and good, that it was up to the Friday Mosque, the impressions went on increasing.

    Huge, you need several hours to visit this Palace of stone or stone patio built by order of Ala-KuliKhan in 1830-40. A good way to understand the essence of the culture of the ancient Khorezm region. Anecdotally tell that one of the architects was impaled because he refused to build it within the period of two years.
