We nicely asked if there is a stairway access to Zoroastrian remains before we commit in paying for the carpet 'museum' entrance fee. The young lady couldn't understand so she directed the older lady to us, we repeated but she can't seem to understand what...More

It's amazing how things change over centuries, but this sacred facility still stands. This place used to be a Buddhist and then a Zoroastrian temple, until it became a mosque. Unfortunately, it's currently a some sort of carpet museum and is not being used as...More

If you're interested in history and religions, this mosque's architecture is of interest. It is built on an ancient Zoroastrian fire and older Buddhist temple. Unfortunately, while the exterior is interesting, inside, it is difficult to see the remnants of what would have been those...More

From the outside this is an unusal old mosque, but when you go in it is a carpet shop. You won't find any traces of the Zoroastrian origins that are attributed to it in the guidebooks

Read about the history and what to look for and it'll be interesting. The various periods which are represented here and how it was saved are inserting things to read about. There is a carpet museum/shop inside too

Central Asia’s oldest mosque is located between the two covered bazaars in Bukhara and dates back to the 12th century; only the southern portal remains. This is a logical stop for any tourist as it is considered one of the most sacred places in town....More

This mosque is now being advertised as a carpet museum and there are, indeed, plenty. Origin is indicated. By the way, did you know, that what's called the Bukhara carpet actually comes from Turkmenistan? There are remnants of an old Zoroastrian shrine that stood at...More

We came to Bokhara with the intent of seeing this very interesting site. I was especially glad to see that it has not been tiled-up,although surely it will be soon enough. This is one of the oldest, holiest sites in Bukhora. Under the mosque, are...More

Reviews for the Maghak-i' Attari mosque appear to be confusing this little ancient mosque near Lyab-i Hauz with the enormous Kalon mosque next to the minaret. They're incredibly dissimilar. Maghak-i' Attari is, according to the Lonely Planet, a mishmash of 9th century and 16th century...More
