Nadir Divanbegi Khanaka

Historic Building in Bukhara

On the western side of the Lyabi-Hauz is the Nadir Divanbegi Khanaka, a Sufi cloister used for religious ceremonies, debates and instruction. Both this and the medressa opposite are named for Abdul Aziz Khan’s treasury minister, who financed them in the 17th century. It's the poor relation of the medressa, but inside there's a small display of ceramics.
