The journey begins with a visit to the Lyabi-Khauz ensemble, this is one of the central squares of the city of Bukhara, an architectural ensemble created in the 16th-17th centuries. The area is formed by the buildings of the Kukeldash madrassah, the Divan-Begi madrasah and the khanaka Divan-Begi, grouped around the reservoir of the house Nadir-Begi.
Then follows the Kalyan Minaret (47 meters), without which it is impossible to imagine the silhouette of Bukhara. It was erected from burnt bricks of exquisite workmanship in 1127 during the reign of Arslan-khan. Near the minaret is the Kalyan mosque and the Muslim religious school - Mir-i-Arab Madrasah, which has been functioning since the 16th century to this day.
