“Chor-Bakr Necropolis”
Reviewed 12 November 2013

Situated a few miles outside of Buchara this place was built to house the remains of Abu-Bakr-Said, who died in 971 AD, and who was one of the four of Abu-Bakrs (Chor-Bakr) - descendants of the Prophet Muhammad.
It is a UNESCO World Heritage site ans quite right to.
There are a huge ensemble of buildings with unique architecture, which was built over three centuries, is considered holy and revered place for pilgrims

It is very easy to navigate and is well looked after, there will always be a few people trying to sell you things but not too much hassle.
There are also some of the buildings being used by local craftsmen which is a great site to see,
Enjoyed our little stop off and also got some things from the local market outside.

“The City of the Dead!”
Reviewed 23 July 2013

Located in a village 8 miles to the west of Bukhara is this ghost or burial town called Chor Bakr. It was once the was the center of the dervish order of hodzhagon. The descendants of Prophet Muhammad, peace be upon him, the Bakr's were buried here. There are thirty buildings in the complex including a khanqah, madrassah and mosques. There is also a big garden. The unique feature of these buildings is that even on a very hot day you feel like there is an air-conditioner turned on in them.
