What awaits the sightseers?

With Minzifa Travel tourists will have enough for one day to get into the mood of the country. During the tour, vacationers:

See the ancient Karakul Gate, which is located on the edge of the city

This is where the tour begins. The Karakul Gate was erected under Abdullah Khan II in the capital of the Bukhara Khanate. The gate was named after the city of Karakul, through which Hajj pilgrims and merchants from the Middle and Near East passed. Today it is one of the main tourist attractions of the city.

Enjoy the splendor of oriental mosques

Kalyan is a Friday mosque built of wood, stone and burnt brick: the facade is decorated with Arabic ligature, blue and blue flowers, and bright mosaics. Bolo-Hauz (Children’s Pool) with its artificial ponds served not only as a shelter for the worshippers but also as one of the main water sources. The Magoki-Attori Mosque is shrouded in legend: Bukhara residents claim that once upon a time both Muslims and Jews prayed there simultaneously.

Visit the Samanid Mausoleum and appreciate the beauty and luxury of Chashma-Ayub

The Samanid Mausoleum was built on the territory of the cemetery: it is the only structure in Muslim history with a full roof. The mausoleum and the well of Chashma-Ayub is a sacred place for representatives of three religions: it is believed that the well was created by the prophet Job, so the water in it is sacred.

Explore Ulugbek Madrasah

In Miri-Arab Madrasah tourists are not allowed, but at sunset and thanks to the bright lighting at night the building looks especially spectacular. The Madrasah of Abdulaziz Khan amazes with its intricate ornaments, bird and dragon silhouettes, marble carvings, gilding, and its close connection to the history of the Great Silk Road. The Ulugbek Madrasah is distinguished by its modest and austere decoration: excerpts from the Koran and astral motifs.

Admire the trading domes and see the fortress of Ark, the palace of the rulers.

The legend tells of Siyavush, the son of a ruler, who was banished by his wicked stepmother. One day at the market, the young man met a beautiful but rich girl and fell in love with her. The girl’s father, ruler Afrosiab, allowed the marriage on the condition that Siyavush would build a luxurious palace. This is how the fortress of Ark appeared.
