This is one of those sites in Khiva that really warrants a local guide.....we visited this palace with our fantastic guide Umida (from Islambek Travel) and came back the next day again....still think we missed parts....as there is so much to see around every corner. Hearing the stories of the palace was fantastic, we were transported back to another era of concubines, hidden doorways and lavish surrounds. The amazing ceramic tiles still remain today, a must visit.

The Tosh Hovli Palace looked very unassuming from the outside and if you just popped your head through the door you'd see a dull courtyard with a European carriage in it, a gift from the Tsar and nothing else. There were doorways to other rooms and the place was a real warren with some rooms having displays and exhibitions, some being amazingly decorated courtyards, especially the harem and also a yurt used when the ruler wanted to pretend he was still a nomadic tribesman, not the ruler of an urbanised city state. The wall decorations and ceilings were again beautiful.

The Khan's palace. The visitor comes upon a large, beautiful courtyard, all decorated with blue tiles.

Very beautiful place with blue tile work all around. The roof of each part was amazingly decorated. Would be appreciable if a little more historical details are displayed in English, in each section.

We enjoyed a really interesting guided tour of the Khans Palace in Khiva.
It's an amazing place eith some stunning courtyards festooned with beautiful blue tiles.
Yhe Khans gmgarem where he kept his mistresses is a bit arresting but as a history lesson it's fascinating.
The Khan's bedroom can be visited as,well.
There is a Yurt in one of the courtyards,not sure why to be honest.
One beautiful courtyard after another and in exactly the right state of repair, not perfect but lived in.

If you're keen on visiting something that's not a madrassa, I can highly recommend the Tash Khauli palace. The inner courts are gorgeous and the details are stunning. Don't expect any (English) signs, so if you want to get to know the history, do hire a guide.
Be aware the palace has 2 entrances, both equally beautiful!

Recommended building to visit when exploring Khiva Old Town, entrance was included in the ticket bought for the attractions in the old town. Beautiful blue tiles, great historical relevance. You can visit all attractions in short time.

Another magnificent structure of early 19th century, built by a Khan with too much money and women. Apparently he was quite impatient too, wanting the palace finished in two years, but it took eight, so a few master builders lost their head in the process. The white and blue majolica tiles are exquisite ; current masters replicate them and they are for sale in the courtyard.
