Even though it’s rated one of the must visit site here in Bukhara I was not sure why. I learned that Chor Minor, the four pillars, was a formal university where teaching of Koran was taught, one side for classrooms and one wing for prayers.

Well worth a visit, was being renovated when I visited but a few respectable words to the workers got me inside, Probable the smallest mosque in the city

It's on the front of a well known guidebook! It was under restoration. Tip; walk there! Good shop with soviet memorabilia next door.

This mosque is very unique with four-domed roof. The mosque itself is small. You can climb to the rooftop for a better view, the stairs are narrow and steep, you must be really fit to do it.

The towers of Chor Minor are not minarets. Three of them were used for storage, and one has a staircase leading to the top floor. All of them are topped by domes covered by blue ceramic tiles.

The Chor-Minor is an interesting madrasa with 4 minarets. Not sure I recall any madrasas worldwide with this many. They are rumored to represent 4 major religions and each are decorated differently

A smaller yet still attractive little building away from the main attractions of Bukhara. Worth the effort.
