“Mulberry Trees sadly mutilated by time”
Review of Lyab-i-Hauz

Lyab-i-Hauz
Ranked #7 of 52 things to do in Bukhara
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 25 May 2018

This famous pond is interesting to visit for its historical value of medieval times, but is not as lovely as it could be. The ancient gnarled marvelous mulberry trees are in even worse shape than in 2006 when I last saw them, and seem to be barely hanging on. I hope Bukhara invests in planting more new trees ASAP so there will be trees here for years to come, and works to conserve the current ones.

Walk around this once or twice and then pick a place to get a cooling drink and watch the locals and hoards of tourists and enjoy the architecture and atmosphere.

Right in the heart of Bukhara - surrounded by cafes, restaurants and loads of shopping - is Lyabi-i-Hauz. Very lively place - with lots of tourists and entertainment.

Outdoor restaurant. Food is local fare, nothing peculiar. There is also air conditioned room if you want to avoid the scorching heat of summer months. Staff is responsive, attentive and some speaking broken English.

What a fantastic location but below average food. Bukhara in general lacks service industry, big opportunity for improvement
