Another typical madrassah with beautiful architecture. This place is still in use and it's in the heart of old town Bukhara. You won't miss it, so when you are there, go check it out. There are always souvenir shops everywhere.

The madrasah has 150 students and therefore access is restricted to the foyer, entered through the magnificent portal. Here you can take photos of the courtyard through the grille but little else.
