Atajanbay Madrasah.

Trip to Khiva.

The madrasah is located between the Russian school and madrasah Mazar-i-Sharif. Built  by Atajanbay, a prosperous landowner of Khiva in 1884.
If viewed from above the outline of the madrassah looks like a quadrangle elongated in a transverse direction from east to west, asymmetric referring to the entrance in the southern wall. Near the north-west wall the madrasah Mazar-i-Sharif is positioned  and between them there is an interior corridor.
These two madrasahs make one single ensemble.
