    Wonderfully photogenic madrassa
    I decided to visit Chor Minor Madrasa because it looked amazingly photogenic, having four turquoise domed minarets. I negotiated a price with a lady driving one of the little electric tourist buggies by the Kalon Mosque and off we went. It was interesting drive through some very much back streets but we arrived at the minaret after maybe 10 minutes and I walked around the outside. The pool next to the minaret was empty but the rose garden was pretty and the minaret was as gorgeous as expected and there were very few people there so it was easy to take photos. There was someone looking over the parapet so I guess you can climb up to the roof if you want to although there wasn't much nearby to see.

    4 minarets
    We took Yandex here after lunch at the plov , a souvenir shop inside the Chor minor madrasah. Need to pay a fee if you want to walk up the stairs inside the minor . Spend less than 30minutes here .

    Our favourite of 14 days of minarets!
    Just when we thought we had seen all the best madrasahs, mosques, mausoleums and minarets in 14 days travelling the incredible sites of Uzbekistan....here was our favourite, in the back streets of Bukhara. The rich beautiful turquoise colour contrasting with the stonework, and storks adorning one of them....just beautiful! Have read that this is the only place to see four such minarets together....not sure about that, but highly recommend a visit and photo or two.

    Small But Beautiful Madrasah
    Beautiful place that deserves to be taken care a bit better. Otherwise we enjoyed our walk around it! Located right in the middle of the Old city, we used Yandex Maps to get there. It takes around 10 minutes walk

I don't understand it gets such a high ranking here. It was disappointing. The state it is in, and the architecture itself.

A very underwhelming building . Yes it looks grand with 4 domes but that is about it . Worth only a 10 minute stop taking pics at an angle . The entire building is occupied by a souvenir shop so it is essentially an overly decorated souvenir shop . As it is 10 minute walk from the other sites , it is to me not a worthwhile site .

It is a madrasa built in 1807 situated in a small courtyard not too far from my hotel Nathan’s madrasa boutique. The four minarets look amazing. At night it looks super cool.

The Char Minar in Hyderabad may have gotten its idea from here.

This small four-turreted madrassah is a 600-metre walk from the other main sites, so worth a stroll and a photo opportunity.

However, it is small and a little underwhelming.

Each corner of this square madrasa is adorned with a minaret. While each one has a blue dome they are all a different shape.
