KAJA-GAUKUSHON MADRASAH

Kaja-Gaukushon complex is the architectural object of worship in Buhkara. The complex consists of madrasah, mosque and minaret, all of which were built in different years. The minaret is only slightly inferior in height to the Kalyan minaret. Gaukushon means “killing bulls”, and there was a cattle slaughterhouse earlier. Lyab-i Hauz is a square in the center of Buhkara and is famous for it’s unique beauty. It is an artificial reservoir, around which Nadir Divan-Begi madrasas and the khanaka are located. Kukeldash madrasah is also located nearby. Lyab-i Hauz is translated as a «basin shore». The complex is an excellent holiday destination for tourists.
