Allakuli Khan Medressa May 01, 2017
This versatile medressa was built in 1834 - 1835 commissioned by the khan Allakuli. The main portal and arched niches are richly decorated with blue and black-and-while Khorezm-style majolica (glazed tile work). Allakuli Khan also founded the city library that was housed in several khujdras (student cells) on the first floor. Today it hosts several enterprises. The Abu Ali ibn Sino Medical History Museum is open during the day. It also hosts a school, the Khorezm Center of Business and Tourism Development. Its students study tourism management. At night these same students run the Khorezm Art Café, which is an excellent restaurant.
