History Of The Sitorai-Mohi Hosa Palace:

In the middle of the 19th century, Emir’s summer palace was built here for the first time, but it has not survived. Another emir later had a new castle built there and named it Sitorai Mohi Hosa Palace in Bukhara after his wife Sitora. This castle was also demolished again. The current building was built in 1912-1918 under Alim Khan , the last Emir of Bukhara.

Sitorai-Mohi Hosa Palace Design and Architecture:

The stucco work and alabaster carvings in the Palace were applied by Schirin Muradov directly on the mirrors and not on masonry. At works in the palace, he froze to death his fingers which remained mutilated after that. The palace Sitorai-Mohi-Hosa now houses a museum showing carpets, ceramic, porcelain, jewelry and weapons embroidery.

In the nearby guest hall, the precious gowns embroidered with gold thread are on display today. But the wall designs are also worth seeing and one of the Tourist Attractions in Bukhara.

Through the garden, you can reach another building, which is located on a small pond. It is the harem. At the side of the pond, a raised pavilion served as the abode of the emir.
