The original construction of Ark was built about 2500 years ago and the last biggest reconstructions were recorded in the 17th and 18th centuries when the Ark was separated from the city with high walls and became a citadel in the citadel.

What to see in the Ark of Khiva?

While visiting the Ark, from the outside guessing the beauty of the inner palace is impossible. As Khiva is an oasis in the desert Kyzylkum the extreme temperatures did not let the local architects decorate the outside of the monuments.

 Inside the Ark there are four different parts:

1. The Reception Hall – designed for receiving foreign ambassadors etc. The reception hall is decorated with typical blue and white ceramics of Khiva. The Hall of Throne has a copy of the wooden (covered with silver) throne of the local rulers. The original throne is kept in Saint Petersburg, in the museum of Hermitage.

2. The Summer & Winter Mosque – the beautiful summer mosque decorated with blue white ceramics of Khiva. The winter mosque does not have any decorations of its initial construction and now it’s become a small museum of history.

3. Observation Tower Ak-shikh Bobo – used to be the arsenal, observation tower or accommodation of the Saint Patron of the state during different periods. The observation tower Ak SHikh Bobo is one of the most ideal places for having a view over the whole city of Khiva.

4. The Harem – the harem used to be the main part of the palace and it occupied nearly the half of the entire palace. The harem is now closed for visitors.

The citadel Ark is worth paying a good visit. Its summer mosque and reception hall are richly decorated whereas the observation tower offers a fantastic view over the city of Khiva.
