Khiva scarcely seems to have been touched by the modern world and presents us with an architectural universe that is quite unique in Asia. The wealth of the city which was both the centre of a rich agricultural region as well as one of the principal centres of the slave trade in Central Asia, led to the construction of religious and administrative buildings, renowned for their dimensions and their luxurious sophistication. Listed as a World Heritage Site by UNESCO and as a resulted both protected and renovated, the old town of Khiva, will enchant you with the harmony that exists between its major constructions and the rest of the habitat. The old fort and the Madrasahs of Mohammed Rakhim Khan and Islam Kodhja, whose minaret is the highest in the town, the Djouma Mosque as well as the Tach Khaouli Palace... is just a brief list of the many possibilities which the town of Khiva has to offer.
