This was part of my guided tour of bukhara.
Its off the beaten path. Restored. Guide took me up the narrow stairs and was deceived how much room are in the domes. Good views from the top.

... but defintely worth the detour. It is situated in a quiet area of Bukhara. The lady of the shop on the ground floor (everywhere in Oezbekistan you find souvenir shops) is a bit pushy ...

Situated in an odd location in the middle of a housing area getting here on foot was interesting - i dont mean difficult I mean genuinley interesting (Don't worry - it's easy to find).

The mosque is very small but soooo photogenic with its 4 towers - well worth the walk to have a look at.

Facing the mosque is a market stall selling some very interesting Soviet era artefacts.

A little out of the way in a suburb, but walkable if you have Google maps. A beautiful little building! Climb up to the second floor for charming views.

This mosque has 4 closely placed minarets.
It is said they represent the 4 religions of Central Asia. It is situated in a residential part of Bukhara which is a surprising location to find such a unique looking mosque.

A heaven for the eye, mainly in the evening when the lights are on.
A bit far to walk from the old city.

A few minutes' eastern bound walk from Liab-i Hauz's well worn complex, will lead you to the Chor Minor site.
Chor Minor - the four Minarets, is located in a large square surrounded by buildings and souvenir shops for tourists. The structure is unique in light of the four towers that are not typical of any other building in Bukhara. Originally the building was intended to be a madrasa, but what remains of it is only the central part, while the side wings that apparently intended for hosting students were destroyed and only archaeological remains exist. There is also a water pool the age of the building.
Ironically, despite the multitude of Minarets, none of them seems to have been used as a a wake-up call for prayers, since none of them has an opening that allows access to a muezzin.
Each Minaret is decorated with motifs related to one of the four religions that were accepted in Central Asia: Buddhism, Christianity, Islam and Zoroastrianism.
Several benches are located nearby and you can sit and watch the special building for a few pleasant minutes. The building interior is now used as a souvenir shop and can be given up.

A rather beautiful smaller site to visit, a short walk from all the bigger draws. The afternoon is better as all the tours have been and gone. Save some money for the amazing array of Soviet badges in the shop overlooking the site.

This cute little building was inspired by Indian architecture and used as a small madrasah. It not very old. Now it is in use as a tourist shop.

This was a very phographic place and in a good light the blueness was spectacular. It isn't all that old as it was built in 1904 but it is a great site to see.
