Beautiful building currently used as a hotel (which is after all cloes to its original purpose). Able to wander in the courtyard and witness the peace and quiet

Mohammed Amin Madrassah is a must see sight in Khiva. As the sun sets the building lights up. There are a few cafes around that you can sit at and relax and enjoy the views of the impressive complex.

It was originally intended to be the tallest minaret in the Islamic world. Unfortunately construction was abandoned because the Khan died. It now measures 26 metres, but it is quite beautiful
