Mir-i-Arab Madrasa Reviews
We can’t enter inside as this madarasa still exists as a real Islamic institution. However, a gentleman at the entrance kindly explained it to me. The appearance is worth taking photo. more »
Beautiful madrasah which is still very much in operation. Could look inside the courtyard through a partition more »
A very peaceful place in Bukhara where you can just sit and watch the world go by. No entrance fee for this madrasa.
This place is a functional madrasa so they won't let you in. Nevertheless, it's beautiful and well maintained.
