This is one of the iconic images of Bukhara and Uzbekistan as a whole, but in reality it's rather disappointing. It's about a 10 minute walk from everywhere else and there is not much to it than a pretty exterior
We were taken to this via our tour bus as it very tucked away and recognized as the one on the front page of the Lonely Planet guide to Central Asia.

On our 5-stans adventure by advan tour, you see many many mosques, madrassahs and minarets. Chor minor stands out in its own right.

This place is out of the way in a neighborhood not too far from the old town. Its unique and you can climb to the top for a few Som. Its not on the main tourist track so you will probably be the only people there. 15-20 minute visit is all that is needed but worth a stop.
we would never have found this, luckily we fell in with this great little tour guide, who after a long day cam e back to go for dinner with us, she walked us past several house in a residential area, and all of a sudden we where looking at this iconic mosque, which was feared on the cover of our... 更多
