A little out of the way in a suburb, but walkable if you have Google maps. A beautiful little building! Climb up to the second floor for charming views.

This mosque has 4 closely placed minarets. It is said they represent the 4 religions of Central Asia. It is situated in a residential part of Bukhara which is a surprising location to find such a unique looking mosque.

A rather beautiful smaller site to visit, a short walk from all the bigger draws. The afternoon is better as all the tours have been and gone. Save some money for the amazing array of Soviet badges in the shop overlooking the site.

This was a very phographic place and in a good light the blueness was spectacular. It isn't all that old as it was built in 1904 but it is a great site to see.
