One of the top sites along the whole Silk Road. Don't miss this massive minaret.

The Kalyan Minaret is absolutely massive! It dates back to the 12th Century and was for years the highest point in Central Asia. Even Genghis Khan was so impressed with the minaret's height that he spared it from destruction when he ravaged Bukhara. A must see when in Uzbekistan!

Massive minaret next to the Kalon Mosque. Absolutely stunning. The best views are actually from a cafe to the north of the minaret across from the square. They'll probably have a sign claiming this and they are right. Definitely worth going to the cafe to take a few pictures.
