Abdal-Bobo Minaret.

Architectural monuments in territory of Khiva.

Minaret Abdal-Bobo is a small (height - 10m, base diameter - 3.2m) but expressive tower, in the shape of a fat, sharply tapering barrel, crowned by an elegant cornice, or "Sharaf".
On the way to Koy-Darvaza sits the architectural complex of Abdal-Bobo, developed around a small cemetery.
Here in the House Bank, the largest quarter mosque, slaves were traded.
