Faizabad khana-gah

In the outskirts of the old part of the city, to the northeast of Chor-Minor, is located one of the most noble-looking monument in Bukhara - the Faizabad khana-gah (dervishes' former hostel built in 1598-99). Its layout is impressive and well-balanced: the spacious central hall is flanked on both sides by vaulted galleries. The main portal's pylons, as well as the wall behind the mihrab, contain three tiers of cells, which was giving temporary refuge to dervishes.
