The Ichan-Kala fortress - an inner city surrounded by a wall - is truly a tourist mecca. The size of the relict architectural monument reaches twenty six hectares. Ancient architectural monuments are located at an insignificant distance from each other, since the settlement is quite densely packed with buildings. A two-kilometer-long clay wall, reaching a width of up to six meters and having four entrances with gates facing, respectively, four cardinal points, separates the shakhristan (inside) and rabad (outside).
All the buildings of Ichan-Kala were not created as an integral complex, because they were completed gradually, in the process of the city's life, as needed. But even with all its versatility of buildings, one can see enchanting, varied and picturesque architectural monuments of Eastern antiquity, and the most basic accent can be firmly called the view of an ancient feudal city in an oriental style that is in the eyes of a traveler.
