Madrassah of Arab-khan

Madrassah of Arab-khan

Nuriddin D.
The madrassah of Arab-khan (is connected with Arab-Muhammad-khan (1602-1623) from the Chinggisids (Genghis Khan's lineage)) was built in 1616 to commemorate the transfer of the Khorezm capital from Kunya-Urgench to Khiva. It was reconstructed in 1838, at Allakuli-kan. It contains a burial inside the pylon of the southern aivan. The legends say that it might be the tomb of either Muhammad-Amin-inak, or his little son. #Ichan_kala #Khiva #Madrassah_of_Arabkhan #Uzbekistan
