This mosque and minaret are well worth the visit, although it's hard to visit Bukhara and miss them. We didn't go up the minaret (not sure if it's possible or not) but the mosque is lovely inside and very peaceful.

Beautiful watch tower both at night and during the day. 47m tall and found in Kalon Square. Outstanding monuments in Bukhara.

Excellent photos of this, the Medrassa & the Mosque. All are lit up at night, worth a visit both in the day and evening

The great Minaret of the Kalon is a wonderful structure. During day it looks beautiful but the best time to see it is at night.

A heaven for the eye, mainly in the evening when the lights are on.
Superb architecture with the work.

One of the highest Minarets in Uzbekistan. It is very impressive in its design, which is based on structured decorations in the minaret and less on the use of colorful tiles like the other Minarets. Massive construction.
Even more beautiful when lit at night. A Must-Seen site in Bukhara.

My favorite story was that Ghengis Khan was so impressed that he left it standing when he decimated everything else around it. The square containing the minaret, madrassa, and mosque are the highlight of Bukhara. Near the Ark, easy walk. But Ark is kind of a letdown after this.

A wonderful piece of architecture that survived destruction by being useful to the enemy as a watchtower. It is spectacular by day but part of a fairyland view at night when it is lit.

Impressive minaret with a plethora of different brick work. Must visit both during day and night (tower is lit up at night). On a Saturday night you might catch a traditional/ modern folk show in the square in front of the palace, worth a visit!

This place is amazing during the days time but the best time for photos is at night time just fabulous colours.
