Arab-Khan MadrassahThe two historical madrassah are located in the center of Ichan-Qala, to the left of the road leading from the Ata-darvaza gates to Palvan-darvaza. The first is connected with Arab-Muhammad-khan (1602-1623) from the Chinggisids (Genghis Khan’s lineage) and the second relates to Muhammad-Amin-inak (1763/70-1790), the founder of the Manghit dynasty. The madrassah of Arab-khan was built in 1616 to commemorate the transfer of the Khorezm capital from Kunya-Urgench to Khiva. It was reconstructed in 1838, at Allakuli-kan. The madrassah of Muhammad-Amin-inak dates from the second half of the 18th century. It contains a burial inside the pylon of the southern aivan. The legends say that it might be the tomb of either Muhammad-Amin-inak, or his little son.
