The most unique monument in Khiva, a mosque ,justa huge hall with more than 200 pillars dating back to more than a century....two roof lights provide natural light ,add to the charm of it all. The cieling is wooden too. I loved this place ,to just sit here and feel the peace envelop you ,the silence in winters is a bliss.

This mosque reminded me of the Mezquita in Cordoba, Spain, except with carved wooden columns rather than ones of jasper, onyx, marble and granite. The carvings on the wooden columns are very beautiful and interesting.

Went here on our own, then went back with our guide the following day. Well worth a visit. Plan to spend 15 to 30 minutes here to soak up the history and enjoy the vibe.

The mosque is quite different from the normal mosques of the area. It is on one floor with a roof supported by over 200 carved wooden pillars. It strongly reminded me of the Catholic Church in Cordova, Spain which had been converted from a mosque after the reconquest.
