We had a map from our hotel, but had to do a bit of swagging to find this mosque. But since it's one of the icons of Bukhara, and it is quite attractive, it was worth the effort. To me, the iconic picture is from the southwest as you approach on the street. I should have looked at earthview on... More

Beautiful and magnificent place from outside, but nothing special inside. If you look at domes, you will see that each of them is different. Worth visiting, especially with the tour-guide. We ordered one at the hotel.

This small but impressive mosque is surely one of the most beautiful places in Bukhara. While its location is hidden in the small and zigzag area its unique blue dome four minaret towers surely will impress any visitor. It is showcased on Lonely Planet cover guide book and is a Must See in Bukhara.

This stunning building is characterized by its unique 4 domed minarets. Look closely at the top and you will see a tile bearing 1969, the year it was reconstructed. Nice hotels and restaurants nearby offering local fare.

Chor Minor is small, surprising and photogenic. The house in front of the monument has the key and is very easy to visit. A relaxing visit to an impresive and small monument out of the crowds.

This delightful small mosque is now a craft shop (I got a lovely camel wool scarf) and is therefore best appreciated from the raised pathway opposite

Located away from the centre of town and the other main attractions. Chor-Minor has a charm of its own having 4 blue tiled minarets, remarkable for its size and making it quite impressive. Not the biggest of Medrasa, but still a good size. All four minarets have been beautifully restored and have slightly different patterns on each. Very few tourists... More

Despite being situated on one of the neighborhood streets, this building is worth visiting due to its charming architecture which differs from the traditional scheme. Chor Minor means "Four Minarets", but only one of them was early used as minaret and one can have access to it through the bookshop for a symbolic fee. Remarkable also that every tower has... More
