Bolo-Hauz Mosque

Many years ago Registan Square was occupied by numerous beautiful build­ings. Today there is only one monument of medieval Bukhara—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 basin and small minaret constructed in 1917 by usto Shirin. The brightest fea­ture of the mosque is a decor of the avian, columns of which are made of two joined trunks each and have stalactite capitals.
