Palvan-Darvaza means not only the eastern gates of Ichan-Qala, but also a big shopping mall. In the 17th-18th centuries this place was occupied by the ancient gates with a prison. At Iltuzar-khan (1804-1806), and later at Allakuli-khan, the gates were built newly. Proper arch gates with embrasures and side towers intersect the city wall. Behind the entrance arch there is a passage of dome shopping mall with shops and small bathhouse at sides.
