Madrassah of Khurdjum and Allakuli Khan
Welcome to Madrassah of Khurdjum and Allakuli Khan in Khiva. Here you will find information, view photos and read tourist reviews of Madrassah of Khurdjum and Allakuli Khan in Khiva.
The madrassah of Khodjamberdy-biy, near the eastern gates of Ichan-Qala, dates back to 1688. It was reconstructed during the construction of Allakuli-khan Madrassah, the first seeming to form a foundation for the Madrassah of Allakuli-khan because of the significant difference of floor levels. A ramp bisected Khodjamberdy-biy Madrassah. Its new name, Madrassah of Khurdjum (“Saddlebag”), follows from that. A segment of city wall was dismantled as the construction site of Allakuli-khan Madrassah was too close. The southern wing of the new madrassah came on shops of northern Palvan-Darvaza’s line, the northern adjoined Allakuli-khan structure.
