Nakhshbandi Mausoleum

Kalaya, Bukhara Region, Uzbekistan
4 Kudos
Bukhara is region filled with history and important people in the Uzbek history. After checking out the nightlife, bard, and some really good Bukhara restaurants the previous night. My Uzbek friend arranged a day tour which included the Bakhautdinn Naqaband Mausoleum. This iconic individual was considered to be Bukhara's unofficial patron saint. When you arrive to the complex, you'll see the minaret, two mosques that surround the simple tomb. The simple 2m high block tomb is protected by a hanging horse main talisman on the post. Once you reach Bukhara's city center it is roughly about a ten minute car ride to the northeast part of the region to see the mausoleum. I noticed a lot of locals visit here but not much tourists. Still I reccommend checking this out.
