The madrassah of Kutlug-Murad-inak is located opposite to the Madrassah of Allakuli-khan. Kutlug-Murad-inak was the uncle of Allakuli-khan. He was buried in this madrassah, and as he died outside the city and custom prohibited carrying the dead through Ichan-Qala’s gates or wall, the city wall was broken to bury him. The madrassah of Kutlug-Murad-inak was the first two-storied madrassah in Khiva. Only this monument in Khiva is decorated with a relief of unglazed terracotta.
The madrassah of Abdullah-khan is located to the south of Kutlug-Murad-inak Madrassah. It was built by the wife of Kutlug-Murad-inak in honour of their 17-years old son Abdullah, killed in Turkmenia in 1855.
