A must-see Silk Road sight, well worth the long journey to get here. It's obviously centrally located and a delight to see up close.

When you look at wonders like this, you have to think... How in the world did they build such an impressive structure way back then??? Very nice restoration job.

All Khiva sites are amazing...you must find time to stay more there..you must see how the real life is going on...city is still active and the buildings are still used...excellent destinations...

It all looks pretty old and the history of various sections seems to be as important as the visual appeal. However, I read about it afterwards and so missed many parts o the complex. Maybe a guide map would be good. Climb the tower for good views.

If u r in Khiva, u have to visit this place. This is a fine example of Khiva architecture and decoration, such as decorated wooden ceilings and tiled walls.
There are several sections / parts of this citadel and u need a guide to introduce u with various parts of this place, so dont visit without a guide.
