Nowhere near the scale or impressiveness of Bukhara's other Islamic architectural giants, what the Chor Minor lacks in size it makes up for in aesthetics. It's cute, and hidden amongst residences northeast of the Lyab-i-Haus, a walk of no more than 10 mins. I would...More

The monument is idden in small streets of Bukhara and you need to walk a little for arriving to this place. But when you arrive you will immediately understand that this small walk was worth for visiting it.

This madrasa built in 1807 is a copy of the char minar in Hyderabad, India. Not very busy when we went. Lonely planet thought it good enough to feature this monument on the cover of the Central Asia book. Interesting curio shop opposite this monument.

Although tucked away, the walk to Chor-Minor leads you to a beautiful building of 4 minarets built in 1806 (so relatively new). There is a shop inside, as with a lot of buildings, and you can climb up to the roof for views. There is...More
