The Chor-Bakr Necropolis is a fairly common site, not much to see or do here mainly to look at the building and the grounds and hear the stories from the past. It’s a bit out of the city but not hard to find and access....More

I'd say this is a place worth visiting briefly, because as a whole it creates a certain feeling. But, after all the majestic sites of Bukhara, don't expect one killer monument here. Although...if you can find it...there's an AMAZING shashlik place very close by...

The Chor Bakr necropolis from the 16th century has an ornate gate and a blue dome - hardly remarkable for a country full of ornate gates and blue domes. The gate has a distinct forward tilt when seen from the side - this is said...More
