“A masterpiece of Islamic Architecture”

Ranked #5 of 55 things to do in Bukhara
Certificate of Excellence
Attraction details
Reviewed 5 December 2016

The Madrasah is a masterpiece of Islamic architecture and one of the must see sights in Bukhara. Located in the centre of town, the entrance to the madrasah is simply wonderful and words find it hard to describe. This has been wonderfully restored and the intricate workmanship and designs are of a class of their own.

A current day working Madrasah with students studying both the Koran and other subjects. Impressive architecture, stunningly colourful. Situated on a square opposite a mosque, close to the ancient Kalon Minaret and the trading Domes souvenir area.

A must see.

This madrasah is one of the must see sights in Bukhara. The design, craftmanship and architectural splendor are impressive and well worth a visit. The tile and brick work is amazing.

Fantastic islamic and oriental architecture. Working religious site with tons of character. Together with the Kalon minaret and the mosque opposite, the ensemble rivals the Registan in Samarkand for sheer iconic beauty.

When walking around Bukhara I am convinced you will come by this impressive building. It is a working school for studying the Koran (and others). I believe close to 200 students
