Chor-Minor, Bukhara

#2 of 44 in Things to do in Bukhara
Architectural Building · Landmark
Admire the charm of four elegant towers of Chor-Minor, a historic mosque and madrasa, and part of a World Heritage Site. Completed in 1807 by Turkmen Khalif Niyazkul, these round baked-brick towers feature unique ornamentation and numerous sky-blue tiled domes. Their ornateness represents more of a Hindu style than the rest of Uzbek architecture in Bukhara. Three of them served as storage space, while the fourth one has a staircase leading to the top. Climb that staircase to get a panorama of the city, and stop in the small souvenir shop inside the complex.

  • Wow what a beautiful and historical chor minor. Chor means 4 and minor means minarat. Must visit place in Bukhara  more »
  • An imitation of Pakistan's most famous mosque. The comparison is a bit of a let down. The exterior will make you smile if you know the original. The interior is dark and without interest.  more »
  • Cute little ex-Madrassah; there was no one there in the morning when I came to take pictures. Also a cool market with ex-soviet paraphernalia next door with great deals.
  • Our favourite place in Uzbekistan! Chor Minor is a delightful little building.
