We continued through the park to the next stop, the Chashmai Ayub Mausoleum, now a museum of Bukhara water supply. It's a rather nondescript building and entry costs around 30k som (£2) and the museum is quite interesting. It only takes about 10 minutes to read the panels, most are in English, and the scale of destruction of the Aral Sea due to cotton farming was particularly amazing.

Started in the 12th century and was finally completed in the 16th century. The unique element is the conical dome.

Chasmah is a nice stop for a shirt visit. It's beautiful building and beside it there is a sacred pool with protected equally sacred fish swimming. The water is supposed to be a miracle cure but I wouldn't advise drinking it!
Above the mausoleum is an ancient mud bricked Fort, almost gone, but some ruins remain that you can walk up to for great views. It was supposedly built by Alexander the Great.

If your guide takes you here, he's running out of things to do. The mausoleum is only interesting because of its age (Timur era, 14th century), the legend of Job and an remarkable, unusual conical dome (Kwarazm style). Inside there is a tiny museum and a water well ; previously you could drink from it, but they stopped that during my visit.

Legends and stories are associated with this Mausoleum built on a natural sping, there are old photographs displayed in the walls. Actual spring is now covered by a small walled structure, however,one can drink the water to feel the taste.

Chasma Ayub Mausoleum is quite small but it contains enough interesting information inside. This place is worth to visit for museum lovers.

This mausoleum is quite cool, and I’m glad that I stumbled across it on a walk through the park, but I can’t say that it would have been worth a special trip just to visit it if pressed for time. It’s an unusual and interesting looking building from the outside, so if you have spare time then by all means go. If, however, you have to cut some things from your itinerary, I would suggest that sites like this are prime candidates for being ignored.

Chashm Ayub is a small museum which gives an outline of the history of getting access to water in the region. There is a well inside the museum from which water can be drunk. Overall, it is an interesting place just to see once when you're in downtown Bukhara, close to the bazaar.

The prophet Job apparently struck his staff many places from Oman to here, causing a spring to appear whose water cured him of boils and ulcers. The mausoleum contains a small water management museum and a tap to enable pilgrims to drink from the spring.

We visited this mausoleum by walking east from the Talipach gate on Sulaymon Murodov Street. It was a short walk and situated at the northern end of the park, to the right of the zoo. It was unfortunately closed for the day, but we were able to walk around the building and admire the arched brick walls on the property and the four domes on the roof. Of particular interest is the cone shaped double dome at the rear of the building which is a design of the Khwarazm Empire which ruled Bukhara in the early years of the 13th century. The structure is said to date from 1206, but was completed in 1379 during the rule of Amir Timur.

The plaque above the entrance stated 12th - 16th century construction. The mausoleum is in the middle of an ancient cemetery, and built over a holy spring. The spring is known as Job's spring, and named after the prophet Job. The water museum inside the building relates the history of water in Bukhara between the 10th-20th centuries. We were disappointed at not seeing the museum as we had visited a few sardobas in the city and wished to learn more about them and the many ponds and waterways. Before leaving ensure to take a "zoomed" photo of the stork sculpture at the top of the conical dome at the rear of the building. We thought this was a great addition to the mausoleum.

After visiting this site, the Samanid mausoleum is a short walk south and if you continue to the western end of the park, there is a large lake which offers boating, f&b shops and other entertainment.
