Imam Bukhariy Tour

The mausoleum of Imam al-Bukhari in Samrkand is a very impressive place to see. It is a masterpiece of modern Uzbek architecture based on traditional oriental style. When you enter through a huge gate, you will immediately step into the courtyard laden with lavish lawns, tall trees and colorful flowers and on the left is the ablution area and Masjid (mosque). There is also a small souvenirs and local crafts shop. The mausoleum of Imam al-Bukhari lies straight ahead. Inside the mausoleum of Imam al-Bukhari there is a marble tomb, however the real burial site of Imam al-Bukhari is actually below that tomb. The mausoleum is topped by a small dome that is raised upon marble columns shining under the light. The rectangular tomb is cased with polished marble of different colors, and in front of it there is a gravestone written in Arabic briefly summarizing the Imam’s life.
