WELCOME TO BUKHARA
Central Asia’s sacred city, Bukhara has amazing buildings spanning more than thousand years of history, and a thoroughly lived-in and unified old centre that hasn’t changed too much in two centuries. It is one of the best cities to visit in Central Asia for a sight of pre-Russian Turkestan. Most of the centre is an architectural sphere, full of minarets and medressas, a huge royal fortress and the fragments of a once-vast market complex. Government renovation efforts have been more subtle and less unselective than in louder Samarkand. The city’s lodging options are by far the best and most impressive in the country.
You’ll need to pick minimum three days Bukhara tour package to explore the main sights of Bukhara. Try to permit time to lose yourself in the old town; it’s cool to overdose on the 140-odd protected buildings and miss the entire for its many parts. Bukhara lies west of Samarkand and was once a hub of learning well-known throughout the Islamic world. It is the hometown of the great Sheikh Bakhouddin Nakshbandi, who was the central figure in the development of the mystical Sufi approach to religion, philosophy and Islam. In Bukhara there are more than 100 religious colleges and 350 mosques. Its treasures waxed and vanished through succeeding empires until it became one of the great Central Asian Khanates in the 17th century.
Bukhara with more than 140 architectural monuments is more like a "town museum" consisting of narrow streets, gardens, green parks and historical and architectural monuments belonging to the different eras, but situated very close to each other.
