Khazarasp-Darvaza a gate.

Foot walks and excursions across Khiva.

“If a nuker is such a protection from him,
Neither for the protection of your gates, it is not suitable, nor a spoon for food will not.
Finally I let go of the horse, moved forward
Chasing a horse, climbed a mountain.
Seeing me, my people moved too,
Left behind people fear.
Having reached the mountains, we quickly climbed up,
Despite the arrows of the enemy, they rose.
Sometimes getting off the horse, sometimes on horseback,
We went ahead, boldly,
The enemies threw arrows from the mountain,
Seeing our strength, they abandoned everything and ran away. ”

Zahir ad-Din Mohammed Babur. "Babur-Nama."
