You should not miss the museum inside of Islom Xo?ja madrassah, as it exhibits a very good overview of Khiva?s artwork for which it is so famous. The museum is consisting of several rooms connected to each other and displays beautiful woodwork (big pillars and the door in picture 4), jewellery, pottery and carpets. It is also quite cool inside; the air conditioning did work well (and I was happy).

Before you head out in the burning sun again, you might like to relax a bit in the shady madrassah?s courtyard. It is quiet here, it seems that most of the visitors are quite in a hurry for the next city sight.

Address: Khiva, Ichon Q'ala
Directions: Southeast of Khiva?s (east-west) main street, you can?t miss the minaret.
