- Mausoleum of Chashma Ayub ("Source of Job"). According to legend, even before the existence of the city, people who lived here were dying of drought, but when they saw the wandering Job (the prophet Job from the biblical story), they asked him for water. He struck the ground with his staff, and in the same instant a source of crystal clear water appeared. The construction of the mausoleum began in the XII century and the building was rebuilt many times. An unusual conical dome in the form of a tent appeared in the time of Timur, thanks to the captive workers from Khorezm. Today in the building of the mausoleum, in addition to the source, there is a water museum. And the water in the spring is still clear and pure.
Lunch at the restaurant. After lunch, continue the excursion:
- The Lyabi-Khauz complex - the heart of Bukhara - is one of the central squares, formed in the 16th-17th centuries. The central pond "hauz" is framed by three buildings - Kukeldash madrasah, Divan-Begi madrasah and Divan-Begi khanaka. The hazu is surrounded by old tall trees, which provide coolness in the summer heat and make the square a favorite resting place for local residents.
- The Trade Domes are three trade centers that have survived since the 16th century: Toki Zargaron - the bazaar of jewelers, Toki Telpak Furushon - the skullcap bazaar, Toki Sarrafon - the bazaar of money changers.
- Magoki Attari Mosque - in 937 the mosque burned down almost to the ground in a fire and in the 12th century it was restored in the likeness of a miraculously preserved southern portal.
- The Poikalyan complex (XII-XVI centuries) is a visiting card of Bukhara - an architectural ensemble consisting of the Kalyan cathedral mosque, the Miri Arab madrasah and the Kalyan minaret, the highest (46 m) in the Central Asian region.
- Twin madrasahs - Ulugbek and Abdelazizkhan
- The Faizulla Khodjaev House Museum is a fine example of 19th century Bukhara residential architecture. The house belonged to the father of the politician Fayzulla Khodzhaev, the millionaire merchant Ubaydullo Khoja Kasym Khodzhaev, who traded in karakul in Russia, Germany and other countries. Aivans, living rooms, living quarters are decorated with magnificent carvings and paintings on wood and alabaster.
