The Garden Guide

Sitorai Makhi Khosa

Known by its Russian label the 'Emir's Summer Palace' was built in 1911. It has both European and Asian features but its chief interest is a surviving example of garden retreat outside a walled city. One can easily see that that life was much more pleasant here than inside Bukhara's Ark Fortress - just as Timur found life pleasanter in the gardens round Samarkand than within its fortifications.
