Small town, some 30 km from Samarkand
Get there with a marshrutnoe from the Bazaar
It's a pilgrim's for Al-Buchari, one of Islams greatest scientists.
Very clean domain (no entrance)
Very expensive mausoleum, paid witth the money of rich sponsors. Lots of gold.
The museum only houses korans which have been given bij the leaders of other moslimcountries. Not worth the 1000 sum.
We expected things on display about Al-Buchari, but no.
