The Bolo Hauz Mosque

Rabatak, Bukhara Region, Uzbekistan
9 Kudos
The list goes on with the places you must visit in Bukhara. Make sure to add the Bolo hauz Mosque to that list! The historical mosque was bult in 1712. You won't miss this place since it is located just across the famous Ark Of Bukhara and citadel. The thin columns of the mosque is one of its distinct features decorated with colored murqarnas. There is a small minaret for the mosque and also what visitors will notice it the typical Central Asian inerior design of the historical Mosque. Make sure to come in the morning, since this is close to the citadel the crowd does get busier later during the day.
