…. there was brutality and terror during the Khans' governments. A lot of people have been thrown into jail (the Zindon) and killed later.
We are continuing our walking tour in Khiva now turning left (north) from Kalta Minor to head direction Ark. In front of the Ark, we see a big plaza, separating the fortress from Madrassah Muhammend Rakhim Khan II (1871).
In the middle of this plaza there is still the deep square shaped pit, where death sentences have been executed.
Even if some people say I am quite bloody-minded, shivers ran down my spine imagining all the murder and blood here.
Address: Khiva, Ichon Q’ala
Directions: Head north from Kalta Minor; it is the next big plaza 50 m from the short minaret.
