Tash Khauli Palace has the most luxurious interior decoration in Khiva, including ceramic tiles, stone and wood carving, and ganch. The palace built by Allakuli Khan was to become a more majestic alternative to Kunya Ark, having 150 rooms in 9 courtyards, with high ceilings for greater air access.
According to legend, Khan Allakuli was in a hurry with his project. A contemporary of Allakuli-Khan wrote that the best architects of that time were executed by his order for not completing the work in 2 years. Usto Calandar Hivagi took 8 years to do this.
