Bakha ad-Din Nakshband Complex

Bakha ad-Din is a ritual ensemble, built in the former centre of the dervishes' Order Nahshbandiya. Its spiritual guide, Sheikh Bakha ad-Din was conveyed to earth in 1389 near Kasri-Arifon settlement (now the Kagan district in the Bukhara region). Toward the 16th century the Bakha ad-Din ensemble has acquired characteristic features of a necropolis combined with a ritual place. In 1544 Khan Abdul Aziz the Second built a burial vault -"dakhma" - above the Sheikh's grave, with a carved marble fence, and at a distance - the biggest ever khana-gah.

12 km outside the city, this holy place of Islam is truly inspiring many people. Pilgrims, young and old, men, women, children, from near and far gather for blessings, prayers and meal together in these peaceful and serene surroundings. A museum gives you more insight into yet a different aspect of Central Asian's fascinating history.
