2 Bukhara citadel of Ark obtained its modern appearance in the period of the Man-ghit dynasty ( ). Ark was the center of Bukhara statehood. There was a palace of Bukhara amir, mosques, exchequer, governmental administration and prison. Its grand entrance fronted the Registan Square. The massive gates were reinforced with two towers connected by the gallery above. In the past a lash was hanged above the gate symbolizing the power of amir. Arc suffered much in 1920 when Red Army conducted shell attack and bombed the city. Since 1945, the Bukhara State Architectural Art Museum-Preserve has been situated in the Ark citadel.
3 Bolo-Hauz mosqueIn the past Registan Square was occupied by numerous beautiful buildings. Today there is only monument of medieval Bukhara - the Bolo-Hauz Ensemble. It is a classic sample of Central Asian mosque: the winter building of 1712, summer aivan of the early 20th century with ornamented ceiling and wooden columns, small minaret constructed in 1917 by usto Shirin and small basin. The brightest feature of mosque is decor of aivan which columns are made from two trunks each and have stalactite capitals.

A blow of his staff created a well ("chash-ma"). Its water remains pure to this day, and is considered to have healing powers. According to legend, a holy structure already existed here in the 12th century. The inscription on the portal states that today's structure was built by Amir Temur. Characteristic of Chashma-Ayub is a conical dome, typical of Khorezm architecture in the 13th and 14th centuries. Most likely, Khorezm masters invited by Temur were the builders of Chashma-Ayub.

7 Toki-Zargaron, Toki-Sarrafon, Toki-Tilpak-Furushon - shopping mall in Bukhara Historical monuments of BukharaMedieval Bukhara was a big business city receiving merchants from Central Asia, Iran and India, Russia and China. The trading status of Bukhara influenced its planning and architecture. Central streets played a roleof markets, each of which specialized in some products. So, domed and multi-arched buildings were constructed on the squares and crossroads to make sale more comfortable. They were named "tok"-arch, dome. Three such structures survive to this day. These are Toki-Zargaron (dome of jewelers), Toki-Sarrafon (dome of moneychangers) and Toki-Tilpak-Furushon (dome of headwear sellers). These domes-"Toks" of the 15th-16th centuries blocked crossroads. They directed traffic, unloading arterial road and organizing trade. Shops and workshops were located inside on perimeter. Architecturally and functionally Tim of Abdullakhan belongs to "Toks". This is large multi-dome mall for silk sale. In the center of Tim there is a big area for sale. Dome gallery with fifty six shops is going on its perimeter.

There are two small madrassah and architectural ensemble of Gaukushan related to the Shaybanid buildings of the 16th century. This one-storied complex includes mosque, low minaret imitating Kalyan and madrassah with dome hudjras.
10 Sitorai-Mohi-Hosa Palace (late 19th c. - early 20th cc.) Sitorai-Mohi-Hosa Palace was a country residence of Bukhara amirs. It had been under construction for two decades at the end of the 19th - early 20th centuries. Construction works at the old palace started at amir Abdullahad-khan (died in 1910). He sent Bukhara masters to Petersburg and Yalta to study Russian architecture. Using Russian experience, local architects with usto Khodja Hafiz at the head built a rich building that had combined local Bukhara and European traditions. Its throne hall for royal receptions made a core of the palace.

It was installed around 1620 between khanaka and madrassah, constructed by the order of khan's vizier Nadir Divan-beghi. The two new buildings and Kukeldash Madrassah had formed a perfect architectural ensemble with reservoir in the middle. The pool is of 42 m in length, 36 m in width and about 5 m in depth. Lyabi-Hauz has stone steps by which Bukhara watermen went down to take water.
15 Khanaka and madrassah of Nadir Divan-Beghi (1620) Khanaka was built first of Lyabi-Hauz ensemble. It was a place for staying and meditations of Sufis. This is a massive rectangular structure with cruciform hall under dome and hudjras in corners. The pool was built later. Nadir Divan-Beghi constructed caravanserai on its other side. At the opening of caravanserai, Imamkuli-khan ( ) complimented his minister on construction of the building "for the glory of Allah" by advice of Sufi sheikhs. So, Nadir Divan-Beghi had to convert it into madrassah. Flying phoenixes decorate the reconstructed portal. <>
16 Kalyan MinaretKalyan Minaret (Great Minaret) is the main symboi of sacred Bukhara. The minaret was used not only to call Muslims to prayer, but symbolized the authority and power of its spiritual leaders. The central ensemble of Bukhara - Poi-Kalyan - literally "Beneath the Great" grew up around the minaret. The Kalyan Minaret is a round tower 9 m in diameter at its base, tapering to 6m at the top. It is possible to ascend the minaret from the roof of the cathedral mosque through a passage. Inside the tower is a spiral staircase having 104 steps. Total height of the minaret is 45.6m. The inscription on the cornice announces the date of its construction, 1127, and the name of its architect - Bako.

It was constructed at the Shaybanids in the 16th century in account of trophies the nephew of Shaybani-khan, Ubaidallah-khan (died in 1539) took. Khan gave them to his teacher and head of Bukhara Muslims Miri-Arab ("Prince of Arabs"). The last came from Yemen and was a pupil of Khodja Akhrar. Madrassah has traditional layout-two floors of hudjras surround four-aivan courtyard. Classrooms occupy three corners of the building.
